RALEIGH, NC - Over the past months, we’ve been touched by the support and contacts from futsal partners around the world hoping the return to “normal” for their clubs, teams and players could begin with a trip to compete in the World Futsal Championships. While you don’t know how much it meant for each of you who reached out, for our staff and board members it was a much needed lift during a very difficult time. So thank you, all of you.
We want to give the futsal world an event it so desperately needs right now, but have been unwilling to go forward until we were assured by our Disney Sports and AAU partners that we would be able to to do so in accordance with CDC, state and local guidelines while still allowing us to provide a world-class competitive environment for top futsal clubs and teams.
To this end, I am thrilled to announce that today we are finally ready to announce the basics of the plan we have been working on for the better part of 90 days have been approved and we are ready to get started planning the most important World Futsal Championships we have ever run.
Below are the basics of 4 “AREAS OF IMPACT” that will be addressed prior to and during our event. Our detailed COVID -19 Plan for executing this event will be made available soon.
I. CONTACTLESS REGISTRATION
II. EVENT MODIFICATION
III. SOCIAL DISTANCING
IV. SANITATION AND HYGIENE
