Futsal Event Report / フットサルイベントレポート

In anticipation of the World Cup in Brazil, The Entente held an event on the 14th June, 2014 at the Rokko Island Football Stadium. Futsal differs from football in several ways; teams of 5 players compete on a smaller field with smaller goals as well as a heavier ball. Futsal is said to have originated in Uruguay and spread throughout Brazil in the 1930’s and 1940’s. In fact, in Brazil more people play futsal than football as it can be played by anyone regardless of weather conditions.

On the day of the event, three teams (A, B and C) competed in eight 10 minute matches in a league style format. The weather was ideal as the sun shone down upon the field and within a couple of matches everyone was dripping with sweat. The games were competitive but friendly as each team played their hardest to come out on top. With no substitutions, each game was a test of willpower and physical endurance for all the players involved.

In the end, Team C was victorious and came in first place undefeated. Team A came second and Team B came in last place. Special mention goes to Mr. and Mrs. Hodge who played a large role in Team C’s victory. Mr. Hodge scored 4 goals and received a prize for being the top scorer on the day. Not to be outdone by her husband, Mrs. Hodge received the award for Most Valuable Player as she assisted in several goals, scored a couple herself and played a central part in Team C’s success.

Everyone who participated had a great time and a good workout.  We hope to see you at the next fitness club event. Thank you.
