Under 13 players from all over the state will have a shot to show their breathtaking Futsal Skills in the upcoming “IO-Plus Guwahati Futsal Festival, Season 2” organized by Guwahati City FC (GCFC). In order to give a platform to the young football players of the state, GCFC stated that Futsal is the smartest and most popular platform for kids to develop football skills as it needs close ball control and sharp mind because of the format of the game.
Kaustab Chakraborty, Director of GCFC, said that many great players like Pele, Messi, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo nd Neymar learnt their techniques through Futsal in their childhood. And for a state like Assam, where proper football infrastructure is still not in place, Futsal can do wonders in nurturing young talents. With this vision, GCFC has decided to extend Futsal Festival’s reach towards kids and teams from across the state and region to participate in the festival to showcase their talent.
Chakraborty also added that schools and academies can also send their five-a-side Futsal teams for the festival. For details, interested teams can follow the club’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
The festival will be held at DTRP Indoor Stadium (Nehru Stadium), RG Barooah Road, Guwahati on 15th and 16th of September, 2017.
Interested kids’ teams can contact 9706570219 or 8638698279 for details.
