The World Futsal Championships will welcome teams from all across the world. From Australia, at the end of July, will arrive the Bayside Pirates who will play the women’s tournament within the Cadete category. The girls qualified after winning the Craig Foster Tournament.

The girls didn’t just win that championship, played on the Gold Coast against other Australian teams, but dominanted the competition. They won all the eight matches played, scoring 42 goals and conceding just 7.

“We place a lot of emphasis on female futsal, as it is part of our Strategic Plan, and it is proving successful.  This is the first time that the club will be participating in The USA & The World Futsal Championships and we hope it will lead to further tours in the future. We are coming to play and we will do our very best to win it”, said Mark Georgeson, president of the club.

Beside the Cadete team, Bayside Pirates, founded in 2008 as primarily a junior futsal club, has senior men’s and women’s teams. The latter won the New Zealand Football’s National Women’s League in February. There are four volunteers working on the women’s side of the club.

The Cadete team will carry out a training camp before the World Futsal Championships, which will be played from July 31st to August 3rd at the ESPN World Wide Sports Complex within Walt Disney World Resort. Everything is being prepared, possibly, for another dominant performance!
