Futsal is one of the fastest growing sports in the country with over 30,000 registered players. The Futsal SuperLeague 2020 was in part funded by the Government’s Sport Recovery Package announced earlier this year.
Futsal Whites Head Coach Marvin Eakins said:
“It’s great to finally know the fixtures for the new Futsal SuperLeague and have competitive national competitions running in this disrupted year, something that we didn’t know would be possible six months ago.
“I know the players, coaches, officials and support staff are all excited about us getting back on the court. It’s also great to know that supporters across the country are now allowed so I encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the 2020 SuperLeague.”
