Waltham, 10th October 2012; Mass Premier Soccer announce their winter schedule for 2012/13.
Having spent significant time reviewing and researching the benefits of adding Futsal to our player development system, Mass Premier Soccer would like to announce that the winter schedule for 2012/13 will include a significant commitment to Futsal.
“We are excited to include futsal as a component of our training calendar as we look to maximize the development potential of each player within the club,” said MPS Director of Coaching Peter Bradley. “Futsal has proven to be an important part of the player development landscape for leading soccer nations such as Spain and Brasil. Futsal demands good technique and quick decisions, and we feel it will be an excellent addition to the development environment for our players.”
The term FUTSAL is the international term used for the game and is derived from the Spanish or Portuguese word for “soccer”– FUTbol or FUTebol, and the French or Spanish word for “indoor” — SALon or SALa.
The Brazilians are among the many nations committed to futsal, with players like Pele, Zico, Ronaldo and Bebeto all credit futsal for much of their skill and technique development. While Brazil continues to be the futsal hub of the world, the game is now played, under the auspices of FIFA, all over the world. This includes Spain, where they have their own futsal league governed by UEFA. The Spanish national futsal team have won the World Championship twice and won six UEFA Futsal Championships. It is easy to argue that Spain and Barcelona are currently the most technical and successful teams of this generation, and futsal has clearly been a big part of their players upbringing.
Futsal has been played in America for a number of years, the U.S. Futsal Federation was founded in 1981 and incorporated in January 1983.
