Letter from the AMF:

Dear Officials, athletes and futsal friends from all over the world:

During this time in which human feelings are so exposed, a time during which we usually reflect and analyze about everything that happened during the year that is about to end, I must firmly say that we are close to the year 2011 with a strong and solid AMF.

As a matter of fact we must recognize that both traditional futsal and our Entity have experienced throughout 2010, significant accomplishments but also some setbacks. However, as of this date it is important to say that beyond all obstacles or problems, our sport is still in the spotlight as well our resilient and successful entity.

I would like to paraphrase the expressions of the President of Argentina, who in a speech said: “Only in the dictionary success comes before work”.
I cannot agree more with the above-mentioned phrase my dear friends: success cannot be accomplished without work. Success cannot be accomplished in isolation. Success is achieved with the work of all of us who love this noble sport.

This year we have set new goals, which I am sure we are going to reach and even surpass… We just need everybody’s effort and work. I urge you to keep fighting for the ideal we share.

May love and hope be born again this Christmas…
And may hope encourage us to work for a future of peace, integrity, unity and more significant accomplishments for the next year.

I kindly express my usual wishes:

A really happy Christmas along with the family
A new year filled with success

Dr. Rolando Alarcón Ríos
AMF President

Supercup UEFS:


Chemcomex Prague today played the first match of the European Super Cup with the club Podvodnik Yaroslavl.
The match started cautiously but gradually pushed more after all the guests who have developed several chances.
On the shell particularly interested CHEMCOMEX of volleys that flew just over the goal. . In the end of the first half , however, Yaroslavl struck twice, each for quick action.
And at this uncertain time home defense after the break guests punished third goal into an empty net.
At that moment it seemed that Chemcomex to turn in the game have not. . The pressure was increased gradually, but with it came the chance.
First Fichtner hit a separate intersection and then stick Rajnoch hard shot under the crossbar has dropped to 1:3. Chemcomex added momentum and vice versa Yaroslavl lost its certainty, which reflected immediately - before sighting the ball skilfully tečoval Rajnoch goal and it was just one wicket.
And comparisons could be for a while, miners through it, the ball before the goal, but Fichtner hit him in the fall just that bounced from one pole to another and then out of the gate.
Russians at that time were insignificant, but they help the individual actions of their attacker and accurate shot to the stick - and it was back to two goals.
In conclusion Chemcomex heavily and eventually two seconds before the end of a wonderfully relaxed Kozár Fichtner, who edited into an empty goal in the final 3:4.
Chemcomex way to replay it tomorrow with only one goal deficits and fight for the Super Cup is still open.

As we draw to the end of 2010 we can reflect on an amazing year of Futsal it has been for New Zealand Futsal Association and Vikings Futsal. The NZ Men defeated Australia to qualify for the AMF Futsal World Cup to be held in Colombia March 16-26th 2011 and the NZ Women finished runners up at the Vikings World Futsal Championships and along the way defeated Australia for the first time ever.

Added to this the success of the Kiwisport KiwiFutsal programs in Dunedin and Nelson which have now seen 2600 primary school children exposed to Futsal for the first time. New Zealand Schools came oh so close to taking out the Australasian School titles on the Gold Coast of Australia with Dunedin School Taieri College finishing runners up in the 19girls division and Christchurch School Linwood College finishing 3rd in the 19 boys division.

New Zealand players featured in the Allstar awards at this event with Charlie Kerry and Shontelle Smith (both Taieri) picking up awards along with Josh O'Keefe and Joe Davies (both Linwood). Both Charlie Kerry and Josh O'Keefe are players to watch in the future with the senior Men and Womens coaches keeping a close eye on each player.

New Zealand capitalised a 4th round miss by Australia and went on to take the match 5-4 on penalties.
