After a successful AMF Mens Futsal World Cup in Argentina 2019, the South African Futsal Federation now shifts focus to the SA junior development and rankings of futsal on the world stage.The C13 AMF Boys World Cup will take place in the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona from 27 October to 3 November 2019. South African Futsal Federation has been invited for the first time in AMF or futsal history to participate in this junior international event.
This momentous invitation was greeted with much enthusiasm from SAFF and the federation has worked tirelessly and against many odds to bring a talented squad of futsal juniors eager to compete against contenders from around the world.
The C13 AMF Boys World Cup will be the precedent of consecutive junior World Cups to follow in the varying age groups. A sensational opportunity provided to the youth by the South African Futsal Federation. The plethora of AMF international events and exposure for South African on both junior and senior levels circumvents all discrimination attempts imposed on our federation. Mandela’s quote rings overpoweringly true that “sport has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. “Sport creates hope, allow our juniors the opportunity for hope, inspiration and unity.”
