Futsal fever gains momentum


We’ve been giving Futsal a bit of attention lately here at The World Game and it seems we’re not the only ones. The FIFA Futsal World Cup currently taking place in Brazil has attracted the interest of some big name sponsors like Adidas and Nike with aim of taking Futsal all the way to the 2016 Olympic Games. According to promoter Hideraldo Martins, an investment somewhere in the vicinity of $A100.1 million is currently being undertaken to help give Futsal the attention it rightly deserves on the world stage.
