United Futsal is extremely grateful for all the Brazilian teams that have attended and grown our tournaments over the years. The Disney event and the World Futsal Cup have become the biggest youth futsal tournaments in the world with more teams applying each year. As a result, United Futsal has partnered with BRA Assessoria in order to provide a direct contact in Brazil during the tournament application process.
"Brazilian teams will now have direct contact with a Brazilian-based service provider, which will positively impact customer service, payment plans and player experience overall," said Leo Meireles, United Futsal Technical Director.
Furthermore, Brazilian teams interested in competing at Disney or the World Futsal Cup will apply directly with BRA Assessoria starting in 2020. We understand that there may be questions about this decision. To be clear, United Futsal has outlined to BRA Assessoria the expectations that our customers have when committing to our tournaments. United Futsal and BRA Assessoria share the same goal of providing an unforgettable experience for Brazilian teams that compete at Disney and the World Futsal Cup. BRA Assessoria will build upon the professional organization at our tournaments and make the application process as easy as possible for teams that participate.
"BRA Assessoria is committed to providing more development opportunities and new experiences for the clubs and athletes involved," said Rafael Franco, BRA Assessoria CEO. "We believe this partnership will help children develop as athletes but also as people. BRA Assessoria and United Futsal work for these same purposes.
In 2008, former basketball player and coach Rafael Franco established The Score Brasil - Sports & Events. The company organized international sporting events, clinics and camps for teachers and athletes as well as took Brazilian professionals and athletes to study abroad. Four years later, The Score Brasil was rebranded to Score Sports Academy in Davie, Florida. The company brought more than 7,000 students to participate in U.S. events and helped over 350 young athletes receive scholarships at American universities.
In 2017, Franco partnered with other investors in Brazil. The Score Sports Academy became BRA Assessoria Acadêmica e Esportiva, a company that connects academic and sports to life experiences. Today, BRA Assessoria has three main services: international tours, sports exchange and management of three licensed NBA Basketball Schools.
As stated, Brazilian teams interested in competing at Disney or the World Futsal Cup will apply directly with Assessoria BRA starting in 2020.
