The world knows Santos as the first team that Pelé and Neymar played for. With their long history and titles, they count on fans all over the world.

Neymar, Robinho and other stars in Santos’ history have another thing in common: they started their career playing futsal. The team is known for giving opportunities to young players and has a futsal academy that generates impressive players for the soccer club.

Part of this futsal academy will come to Spain in December to compete in World Futsal Cup VI, one of the most prestigious youth tournaments in the world.
Last year they showed great skill and were crowned champions of the Benjamin category with four games, four victories, 33 goals scored and just three goals suffered. The Brazilian club also had the best goalkeeper (João Paulo Oliveira) and MVP (Caio Gomes) of last edition’s tournament.
“Santos impressed everyone with their performance last year. They competed in the youngest age group but their level of play was far beyond their years,” said Doug Reed, tournament director.
This year, fans in Spain expect another great performance from Santos. We are sure they will not disappoint.
