Rio Futsal Academy will compete in the World Futsal Cup V between December 28th and 30th after a historic campaign at the World Futsal Championships earlier in the year. This will be an even tougher test for the boys from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
The club is a compilation of players from various teams, many well known such as Vasco de Gama, Flamengo and Fluminense. In this upcoming competition held near Barcelona they will compete in four age categories. There they will face clubs such as FC Barcelona, fellow countrymen Santos and other teams from across the world.
However, they should have nothing to fear. At the World Futsal Championships in Orlando they claimed the title in all three categories they entered. To claim both titles in the same year would be a feat no club have achieved in the history of the game.
We are delighted to announce an agreement for The World Futsal Championships has been finalized with FutsalStat (FutsalStat.com), a company that produces match analysis software for futsal clubs. Their products are used by the world's most successful clubs such as Movistar Inter (Spanish Champions), Yugra (European Champions) and Asti (Italian Champions).
The agreement will provide all teams in the Open Age category, both male and female, with a free trial of their statistical analysis software to use for an extended period including the championships. This will allow coaches to be informed in real-time during the game of individual and team performance and provide alerts.
