‘Magic’ UEFA technical director Andy Roxburgh touched on the ‘magic’ of Futsal in an illuminating address to the second UEFA Futsal Conference in Madrid. Incredibly exciting Roxburgh said, ‘Futsal is speed, both in technique and decision-making.It was about tight spaces and creativity. It was incredibly exciting’ FUTSAL IS MAGIC
‘Very significant' With the standard higher than ever before, Roxburgh explained how it was a natural progression last year when Futsal moved to UEFA's professional football division: ‘We had come a long way from 1996 when Futsal was embraced for the first time in a UEFA context. What we did was have an internal transfer, it was very significant. It sent a signal that we felt Futsal should be in the same category as professional competitions like the EURO and Under-21s.’ Football + Futsal = ‘United front’ He added that the football development division at UEFA would continue its involvement with Futsal,…….. the departmental move underlined that Futsal no longer came under just one desk. Instead ‘the whole organisation is now contributing to Futsal's development and growth’.
Grassroots needs Roxburgh said the focus must switch to the grassroots and progress from ‘the bottom up as well as from the top down’. He said there must be greater promotion, and crucially…….they should do all they can: ‘Futsal is fantastic when you see it in a packed hall, on a fast surface with good players and a lot at stake. What you see is sensational...it is a kind of magic.’
