The eighth edition of the MFC overcomes the difficulties of COVID-19 and returns us to normal

The Coronavirus affected the normal execution of the tournament; the numbers of the 8th edition are more smaller  than in the past, but confidence has grown, as confirmed by the presence of two European companies, which have chosen MFC to get out of this ordeal.

Organizing such an important event in just over two months is a real challenge, faced the disastrous events that have changed the lives of all citizens of the world. It is vital believing that everything can be like before, it takes courage to continue those operational projects before Covid-19.

The MFC (Montesilvano Futsal Cup) is a tradition for all youth futsal movement; considering the timing it was important to follow up, bringing all the young athletes back to the field, desirous to relive the emotions of a top-level sporting competition. The result was surprising due to the adhesions of the 21 participating clubs, including 19 national and 2 foreign (Belgium and France).

Four categories, from Under 11 to Under 17 for a total of 109 games played; a surprising number concentrated in just 4 days.

Pescara Calcio returns to victory in the Under 13 category. A 10-teams category, with the surprising exploit of Futsal Les Geants, which in the qualifying round ends with full points, just like the winning Pescara Calcio B does. Two very strong teams, who in the final play an intense match, full of goals and twists.

As it happened two years ago, when Ariccia Valmontone won the Under 17 category on its first participation, another team from Rome replicates the feat, the Sporting Hornets who have the honor of raising the cup, beating in final the highly accredited Fortitudo Futsal Pomezia; a match with few goals, which confirms the robust structure of the two teams.

In the Under 11 category, nothing is taken for granted; the winner of the Futsal Les Geants, conquers the first place in the group, against fierce coompetitorss; in group B the Elledi Fossano Futsal wins the group with full points, but then it will be Cantera Adriatica to challenge the French in the final. Cantera Adriatica who had beaten Hellas Monteverde in the semifinal, who had won all three matches in Group C.

In the Under 15 category, Sporting Altamarca wins the penalty shoot-out against Sporting Club Marconi. A thrilling final where the coldness of the boys is surprising, all extremely precise from the penalty spot.

MFC 2021 will be remembered as the edition of the rebirth; in these days the organization is already working for the 2022 edition; to date, with a sporting season that has yet to come, there are many expressions of interest from all over the world.

Stop Pandemia it’s finally over! Montesilvano restarts!

The 2021 edition of the Montesilvano Futsal Cup will be remembered as the event of rebirth; the main goal  is not to repeat the numbers of the past, but to restore confidence, to confirm that the disastrous situation caused by the pandemic has not erased all the good work ; MFC will almost certainly be the only event able to reconfirm itself, thanks to its prestige and its trust gainef  at national and international level; we confirm, for the 2021 edition, the membership of two friendly clubs, those of Futsal Academy Antwerpen and Futsal Les Geants , Belgium and France respectively

The participation of foreign clubs is an important message, even if the eighth edition has the characteristics of the Italian flag, with the surprising participation of new teams coming from Regions of Sicila, Toscana and Lombardia.  We must remark the numerous enrollments from the city of Roma but also Napoli, with the historic Napoli Calcetto, the Elledi Fossano Fusal from Piemonte and Sporting Altamarca from Veneto.

UNDER 09 and UNDER 11

Among the categories of the youngest, Under 09 and Under 11, the Breton clubs of England and Scotland are still confirmed; the Under 11 confirms the primacy of Olè Futsal; an excellent quality roaster, whose members of the squad boast a pre-emption with the best English football clubs.

The very strong selection of Sporting Club Marconi wins surprisingly, deserving, after having played a perfect final against the English of Olè Futsal.

In the category of agonists, the surprising victory of the F6 Academy in the Under 15 tournament stands out; coach Fernandao’s team beats the Italian selection led by coach Ronconi’s technical staff; a splendid game, played at a dizzying pace.

The countdown has started, a few days after the start of the event, the latest confirmations arrive and the grid is now complete: 43 registered companies, from all over the globe.

The MFC 2019 is increasingly an international sports project for youth aggregation; the excellent reputation has meant that the event is known and appreciated all over the world.

Nonetheless, we are surprised by the interest from some countries, in which the organization has not launched any communication and marketing initiatives. This is the confirmation that the work done in recent years is the best business card to present, to achieve maximum consensus.

This explains the sensational participation of Australia and the Indian Federation.

We can talk about FUTSAL WORLD, as stated on one of the evocative shirts, printed for the occasion, which tends to effectively concentrate the transmitted message.

MFC 2019 earns the right to be one of the most important youth sporting events in the futsal world.

It’s time to present the companies that will participate in the 7th edition of the MFC.

Also this year, there will be seven categories, from the little Under 9s, up to the men’s Under 19; the women’s project is also well underway; like last year, this year too there will be the Under 17 girls.

Surprisingly, in the draw, we point out the presence of four national selections; Ukraine, Italy, Australia and India, who show up for the appointment with a selection of the best youth sector players from their respective countries.

A resounding success, which led to the development of impressive numbers:

  • 43 companies present; 14 nations and 4 continents represented;
  • 7 categories; 84 participating teams; 218 matches to be played;
  • 5 reference cities: Montesilvano, Pescara, Sant’Angelo, Chieti and the Municipality of Silvi.

More than 1,500 people are expected at the event, including athletes, technical staff and guests, for what promises to be the edition with the highest rate of foreign participation. To all of them we welcome and to our territorial realities, we address a particular recommendation: “may this experience be a showcase for all of you”.

It is necessary to thank the LOTTO company which this year has chosen to be present at the event as a technical sponsor. Our wish is that they can continue over the years, linking such a prestigious brand to the no less prestigious Montesilvano Futsal Cup.

We extend our thanks to the host municipalities, which, like every year, support us in the success of the project.

At this point we just have to wish everyone a lot of fun.
