OVERLAND PARK, KAN. (Via US Youth Futsal) – United States Youth Futsal crowned 18 national champions on Monday, concluding its four-day, 126-team National Championships with exciting matches and high quality futsal.

“It was the highest level of play in the event’s history,” said John Sciore, U.S. Youth Futsal’s tournament director. “Included were more teams from more states and regions than ever before — with teams from 11 of 19 different states winning titles. It was a true national championship tournament with participants qualifying through the regional championships and teams from all over the country in attendance.”

Echoing the growth of teams, the tournament was officiated by 55 referees hailing from 13 states. They were overseen by FIFA Futsal Instructor Ed Marco and FIFA Futsal Referee Shane Butler, representatives of U.S. Soccer.

“The U.S. Youth Futsal National Championships provide a great training ground for U.S. Soccer futsal officials,” Marco said. “The quality of play has increased over the past years, which means that the quality of the officiating must keep up or surpass play. From what I observed we had the best group of futsal referees in the event’s history.”

Four teams captured consecutive titles — City Futsal Fusion (Boys U11), Sporting KC Academy (Boys U18), Long Island Rough Riders (Girls U12) and Futura Pink Panthers (Girls U15). Dallas’ City Futsal, Futsal RVA of Richmond and Sporting Kansas City Academy were the only clubs to earn multiple titles with two apiece.
