St. Kitts and Nevis advances to Futsal Final

Despite being granted berth in the finals, Cuba was set to host the regional qualifiers from 17th-23rd February, but with the withdrawal of Dominican Republic, Guyana, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago the event has been cancelled

With many locals unaware of the existence of a local futsal team, the bye into the CONCACAF finals came as a surprise to many football fans here in the federation.

Second Vice-President of the St. Kitts-Nevis Football Association, Al Edwards, stated that a team was formed for some time now and includes ten top footballers eight of whom are members of the National under23 team.

Futsal is played between two teams, each with five players, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted.

Unlike other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football. The rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
