Futsal Club Toronto is proud to announce that they will be representing the Canadian delegation which will travel to Guatemala City for the 2014 CONCACAF Futsal Club Championships.
In collaboration with the Ontario Soccer Association, Futsal Club Toronto’s technical staff has been working hard in preparing for this international event which marks the first ever futsal club championship for the CONCACAF region.
Ontario has yet to establish a pathway for futsal in the region; however, this tournament will be the building block for futsal in Ontario. Toronto is home to a large futsal community and has the strongest futsal presence in Canada.
Try-outs were held in the Toronto area at York University-Tait Mackenzie Centre on July 17-18 and hosted almost 40 participants all vying for a spot on the 12-man roster headed by non other but Head Coach Roy Blanche who recently returned from Vietnam with the Kuwait National Futsal Team which placed 4th out of Asia. Roy will be supported by Technical Director Rafael Carbajal of the Canadian Men’s National Team and Assistant Coach Lorenzo Redwood who has contributed to the development of futsal in the community and at Futsal Club Toronto. Lorenzo was also part of the Canadian Men’s National Futsal Team who competed in the 2012 CONCACAF Futsal Qualifiers in Guatemala as Assistant Coach.
We take this opportunity to celebrate this milestone and look forward to the growth of futsal in Canada.
