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
