Long Beach, California -- The 25th U.S. Futsal
National Championship concluded Sunday, July 11th after four days of intense and exciting competition. The biggest, oldest and most prestigious Futsal competition ended with teams from 12 different states winning medals. "This is great news", said Alex Para, President of U.S. Futsal, "because it not only shows how much Futsal has grown, but how competitive it has become all across the United States". With the growth of Futsal accelerating so rapidly over the last eight years, so has this competition. Teams from the west coast dominated the competition, with teams from California capturing the most medals, followed by Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. The Men's Open competition was won by Pro Sala F.C from Utah, who played against MACSA from California. which had won this division in 2001. This is the second time in 6 years that Utah United has won the the National Title. In the Women's Open category, MACSA from California won its first womens title.


futsalThis year marked the third time the National Championship had 'age-pure' groups. All the games in every division over the course of this event were well played and attended by more than 8,000 participants and spectators. This support was most likely bolstered by the fact that there was quite a cross-representation of teams from regions throughout the U.S. Six out of eight regions were represented in these finals.


Fifty two referees, from various locations across the country, were invited to participate in this tournament. These referees have a combined total of 600 years of Futsal experience, which certainly enhanced the quality of games at this event.


U
.S. Futsal congratulates all the teams that participated for their hard work, dedication and "fair play" throughout the competition.
