United Futsal Update on 2020 Disney Summer Events

Hi United Futsal supporters,

We would like to update everyone on our response to the ongoing international developments of COVID-19 (CoronaVirus).

First and foremost, United Futsal hopes everyone is staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. Please take care of your family and take advantage of the time together. Equally important is taking this situation seriously and remembering that this is a community effort. Please refer to the health and safety guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). 

The latest update is that the Disney summer events REMAIN scheduled. Disney is confident that the ESPN Wide World of Sports facility will be open in July. 

With that said, a few decisions have been made in order to make sure United Futsal provides an unforgettable experience like past years. United Futsal is committed to offering quality development opportunities to the international futsal community.

World Futsal Championships & Showcase to be Merged at Disney 

United Futsal has made the decision to merge the World Futsal Championships and World Futsal Showcase. As a result, the 2020 World Futsal Championships will remain an open-application tournament. This decision was made in order to ensure the event provides an experience that meets United Futsal’s standards.

As a result of this revision, the Disney event dates have been changed. View the updated schedule below.

Updated World Futsal Championships dates:

  • July 26th - Registration and Opening Ceremonies
  • July 27-29 - Event length

Application deadline: 

  • June 15th

Entry fee: 

  • $1295

5 games guaranteed

No Housing Requirements

In 2020, the tournament pricing will NOT require purchasing a housing package to allow for more flexible planning for families during this difficult time. Those that attend Disney will be able to independently select their housing accommodation. We recommend selecting cancellation insurance in case something changes and the World Futsal Championships are cancelled due to the effects of COVID-19.

Refund Policy 

In order to provide teams with flexibility, United Futsal has decided to refund the tournament entry fees if the events are cancelled by Disney. The refund transaction will be made within 2-3 weeks of the cancellation date. 

We will keep you informed of any possible updates. Stay healthy and stay home.
