The World Futsal Cup VI will take place in Spain this December and will feature teams from countries like Brazil, Spain and England. Among them is Peninsula Futsal, a club that has impressed their Australia with their impressive track record.

The Queensland club is affiliated with the Soccer Federation of Australia and became state champions this year after winning 32 of 40 major tournament matches in two of the biggest tournaments in the country (National FutsalOz Club and the Craig Foster International Cup).

The club was created to give each player on the Peninsula and surrounding suburbs an easy access to a fast paced indoor activity suitable to players of all ages and abilities. Peninsula Futsal also organizes tournaments based in the Redcliffe Peninsula and which covers Scarborough, Redcliffe, Clontarf, Kippa-Ring, Woody Point, Rothwell, Deception Bay, Mango Hill, North Lakes, Brighton, Sandgate and Shorncliffe.

“This will be Peninsula’s first time competing at the World Futsal Cup. Even though they are a relatively new club, they have a lot of success in Australia and we know there is a lot of great work going on there. I look forward to seeing them compete against the best in the world and I am sure they will do well,” said Doug Reed, Tournament Director of World Futsal Cup VI.

The challenge in Spain

Peninsula’s next challenge is in Europe where they will face teams like FC Barcelona, Badral/RAD (Japan) and some of the best American teams.

The same squad that will compete in Spain was invited to attend the V-Power Futsal Cup in Santorini, competition which will bring together talented young athletes from over 200 countries.

In Australia, Peninsula Futsal has already made history. Now, it’s time to conquer Europe, starting with World Futsal Cup VI.
