The last few days, during my course in Latvia, I had the opportunity to visit a competition game which we also used in the course for the analyzing topic. A few things striked me: the speed was very high where more patience or insight was requested, the harshness they fought with and live streaming of the game.
The course itself, with mixed attendants from both Futsal and Football, shows that there’s enough interest to continue Futsal in Latvia. During my meeting with the responsible people for Futsal in Latvia, we’ve compared ideas how to shift the focus even more to the clubs, schools, media and football clubs. Because also here they have learned that Futsal is a good support for the development of the football player, rather than being a villain.
Well, almost time to relax and then visit Malta and ofcourse I’m very curious how things are going there in Futsal these days.
