In Italy the first national and international event dedicated to youth Futsal movement, the “Montesilvano Futsal Cup”
Futsal, a discipline that in recent years has been winning the interest of sportsmen and young athletes from all over the world. A sporting discipline that combines collective strategy and individual technique, capable of surprising for the quality of the technical gestures of rare beauty and for the sometimes surprising outcome of the results, subverting predictions and changing the results of a race in a few moments.
Futsal, although far from the spotlight, in recent years has been increasing its popularity and visibility.
The aim is to get the right recognition on a global level, creating the basis for professionalism. While professionalism is not always a qualifying aspect, on the other it is the only element that qualifies and guarantees adequate maintenance for the entire movement. But for a substantial breakthrough, even more so than the federations, the initiative of the clubs is important, the only ones that operating in the area spread the qualities of this sport.
Based on these assumptions, in 2012, the futsal sports project “Montesilvano Futsal Cup” was born.
The creators of this prestigious initiative have been able to win the trust and consensus both nationally and internationally. The MFC is now recognized as one of the most important youth futsal events in the world.
The Montesilvano Futsal Cup is a showcase for the young talent who wants to finalize the development of their career at prestigious clubs both nationally and internationally, thanks to the presence of highly accredited observers and coaches in the world of futsal.
How the “Montesilvano Futsal Cup” came to be
The event, which bears the name of a town in Abruzzo, was founded by a team of people who work in the sector, working within sports clubs qualified in Football with 5 “Roman style”.
As history of the sport shows, the movement “Calcetto” finds fertile ground in Rome, a city that boasts an important tradition. This tradition has taken place over time so that Rome now boasts more than 70 Schools of Calcetto.
The organizers of the “Montesilvano Futsal Cup” have been able to involve the best football clubs in five different areas of Italy, particularly Montesilvano and Pescara, who have understood the potential of the project, supported it and made themselves available to ensure that the event continues with the objectives of both national and international growth.
Thanks to the active collaboration of the municipalities of Montesilvano and Pescara, in conjunction with the clubs Acqua & Sapone, Ca5 Montesilvano and Pescara Ca5 was possible to give life to the 1st Edition of Montesilvano Futsal Cup 2012.
“Montesilvano Futsal Cup”: Italian excellence
In the development of the project “Montesilvano Futsal Cup” the organization has made choices geared toward the qualification and the internationalization of the event. The name itself is an extension of an all too clear ideological concept:
- The location: Montesilvano, pleasant town on the coast of Abruzzo, is also one of the most important centers of the Italian Futsal. In the area of Pescara-Montesilvano throughout the years there have been three major clubs: Acqua & Sapone; Montesilvano Ca5 (winner of the UEFA Futsal Cup in 2009-2010) and Pescara Ca5. As would be expected, Pescara-Montesilvano indoor sports facilities are concentrated among the most beautiful and innovative in Italy, like the Palaroma, the Pala Rigopiano, the Palasport John Paul II and Pala Seine, which will return to use after restoration;
- The choice of the name “Futsal”, given with the motive to extend the boundaries beyond national territory, to Spain, Belgium, Croatia, Russia, not to mention Great Britain, Greece and Sweden.
To date, the “Montesilvano Futsal Cup” is the ideal event for clubs that teach the most talented and express the best of the sport. The organization’s intention is to continue to invite all the clubs to participate and play a leading role both nationally and internationally, together with its pure youth sector, distinguished by the quality of their programs.
The event has chosen to give visibility to the supply chain of the youth sector, from football schools to the Under-21 category, because in these programs there is the strength and quality to develop professionalism in Football with 5’s Divisions like Serie A, Serie B and Serie A2.
