A country that doesn’t know that Futsal is a pillar in grassroots for the development of young football players didn’t take a look in other countries’ kitchens. For years and years the Futsal players are fighting for support from the FFA. I was there in 2000 to prepare the national team for the WC in Guatemala. Now, after 17 years and embraced by a lot of other countries, they still won’t hear of it for our sport; unbelievable.
Also for the AFF Tournament later this year it will have consequences as the draw took already place. How they will solve this I don’t know but for my Australian Futsal friends is staying home not nice. Hopefully somebody at the FFA will reverse this measure.
