Futsal returning to oval in January

BC Soccer’s annual provincial youth futsal championships are returning to Richmond in the new year.

The Richmond Olympic Oval will host the annual event Jan. 5 and 6, 2013.

The free tournament is open to all teams, with registrations being accepted now  on a first-come, first-served basis. (Visit bcsoccer.net for more information).

In 2012, Richmond-Vancouver Fusion FC made a statement to the rest of the province by winning three out of four possible titles—the U14 boys defeated Surrey United 3-1, the U16 boys won 6-2 over Magnusson Ford Mariners and the U16 girls also defeated Surrey United by a score of 3-1. The only club able to overcome the dominance of Fusion FC was the Central City Breakers metro team.

The format for the 2013 tournament will have two separate competition categories, Division 1 and Division 2. Both divisions will feature a round-robin format leading to final elimination matches to crown a winner in each division.

Division 1 is open to club teams from the BC Soccer Premier League and Metro/Select Level while Division 2 is open to any team within the Metro/Select level and below.
