  1. With no futsal league on the island these young men did incredibly well against high quality opposition. Special thanks to our U14 Academy players who played them every Sunday to prepare them for the journey. Keep up the good work players, we are proud of you!

    Futsal World Champions? Should they get a parade or something. As far as I can tell this is indoor football. When was the last time Bermuda had a world champion football team? The Minister of Youth and Sport should at least say some kind of congratulations.

  3. Bermuda Futsal Federation says:

    The Bermuda Futsal Federation extends its Congratulations to the CPAD Academy players and its coaches and team officials. This result is clear proof of the many hours of hard work and dedication that went into producing such an excellent result.

    Although futsal is still in its early development years in Bermuda, this result demonstrates the potential that our players and coaches have.

    Keep up the good work!
