Six years ago the MFC began, today the event is a point of reference for international futsal: 12 nations and 3 continents represented

To measure the success of an initiative, “the number” is the qualifying element; the parameters are the same as always, the number of companies and teams joining and the total number of people participating.

At the Montesilvano Futsal Cup we are used to large numbers, but this year the success of the initiative has a more important indicator, namely the growing interest of international futsal for this event.

This year, on the MFC’s Facebook profile, the organization responded to the numerous requests received from all over the world. Even today, even before reaching the conclusion of the 6th Edition, the Montesilvano Futsal Cup has already had the first confirmations for the 2019 edition, from countries such as Colombia, Australia, just to name a few.

All of this confirms that this initiative is now a worldwide point of reference for youth sector clubs and national teams.

This increasingly widespread diffusion of the brand has ensured participation in the 6th Edition of:

  • 12 nations represented; a growing number that breaks last year’s record, which accounts for approximately 50% of the total value of registered clubs;
  • 3 continents represented, with the novelty of Japanese futsal.

After last year’s prestigious participation of the Argentines of the Rosario Rowing Club, a Brazilian fotbal club will participate in the MFC 2018, the Clube Atlético Paranaense, a football club from the Brazilian city of Curitiba, in the State of Paraná, which in recent years has developed futsal discipline. The Brazilian club, known as Furacão, was Brazilian champion in 2001 and vice-champion of the Copa Libertadores 2005.

There is the confirmation of the Ukrainian Under 17 national team and Inter Movistar Under 19; two important names to which are added well-known names, dear to us, such as that of the Mouscron Team, of the Bielsko Bala Record, of Sporting Paris, of B2M, of TFS Nikars Vanagi. These clubs give strength to northern European futsal, this year also present in a decisive way due to the arrival of new representatives from Hungary, with Tolna Muszi Futsal and Dunakeszi Kinizsi Futsal, from Finland with Kampuksen Dynamo and from Ukraine with Nadiya -Prykarpattya.

On the British front, the English company of Olè Futsal (Under 09 champion) is replaced by the Scottish company of Joga Futsal.

In the national field, the Italian companies are called to a prompt redemption, after last year’s opaque performance; there are confirmations from Elledi Carmagnola, Devils Chieti, Fenice, Futsal Lazio Academy, Sporting Club Marconi and Virtus Romanina.

We welcome the return of Monteverde SSD, Napoli Calcetto and Vallerano Futsal.

The novelties are the adhesions of Globo Grugliasco and some Roman clubs of great interest, such as Fortitudo Futsal Pomezia, San Martino in San Leone and the Sporting Club Balduina.

On the local front, we thank the Real Dem, the Naiadi Accademia Sport, the women’s Montesilvano Calcio a 5, the Colonnella, the Delfino Fiacco Porto and the Città di Penna, who made themselves available to guarantee the success of the competition.

We are just a few days away from the start and this is the table of the protagonists.
