San Diego, CA (September 14, 2023) - United Futsal is thrilled to announce that Ballers Elite, a powerhouse futsal, and soccer club based in San Diego, California, has officially joined the United Futsal Champions Cup Series for the 2023-2024 season.
Ballers Elite, founded in 2018, has rapidly gained recognition for its dedication to nurturing young talents, quickly improving their ball control and technical skills, and fostering an in-depth understanding of the game. With an unwavering passion and strong focus on futsal, the club has achieved remarkable success over the past few years. They boast an impressive resume with futsal titles ranging from two World Championships, seven National Championships, eight Regional Championships, and six State Championships.
At the heart of Ballers Elite’s success is Fabian Vega, whose extensive background, knowledge, and hands-on experience in futsal have become the cornerstone of the club. Coach Vega, who was born in Peru and later moved to the United States, has played for several prestigious teams, and even trained with the Peruvian National team. His passion for the sport and commitment to player development align perfectly with the values of the Champions Cup Series.
"Our goal for joining this program is to compete against the best, improve and advance player development, and provide our athletes with various pathways,” stated Vega. “It’s important that we empower and enhance the abilities of our young players in order to grow the sport, and foster excellence within our own community, and worldwide.”
Ballers Elite's philosophy revolves around the idea that futsal encourages improvisation, creativity, technique, ball control, and precise passing in tight spaces. These skills are crucial for young soccer players' development and are honed to perfection within the futsal environment. Participation in the Champions Cup Series presents an exciting opportunity for Ballers Elite players to test their skills against top talents from across the nation. Competing at this level will undoubtedly contribute to their growth as athletes, both on and off the court.
“While futsal provides immeasurable benefits to young athletes, the most important benefit is that futsal lets you be yourself,” said Vega. “It lets people see the real, the imperfect, and the flawed, and it’s an important concept for our athletes to understand.”
As they embark on this new chapter with United Futsal and the Champions Cup Series, Ballers Elite is committed to showcasing their exceptional talent and dedication to the beautiful game of futsal.
