The futsal came to the Youth Olympic Games!

For the first time in its history, futsal is an Olympic discipline. The change for the field soccer was agreed at the beginning of 2015 after a proposal of the IOC and the agreement of all the confederations. The idea is to fit better the format of the competition in the general structures of the games, explains Jaime Yarza, FIFA Events Manager. The format includes fewer athletes, facilities already used in other sports and festival type format, in which people can enter and leave the game room in a similar way to other sports such as basketball and handball. In addition, the development of futsal in the world will be encouraged, with 10 teams in the men’s tournament and another 10 in the women’s tournament.

In this edition, eligible players must have been born between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2003. That way, they will be between 15 and 18 years old. In Nanking 2014 and Singapore 2010 the age ranged between 14 and 15.

As we do not have futsal youth competitions, it was thought that the best thing was to guarantee a good show, trying to get high-quality players closer to 18 than 14 would be those who participated. The competition will have 2 male groups: A (Argentina Egypt, Panama, Iraq and Slovakia) and B (Iraq, Solomon Islands, Costa Rica, Russia and Brazil) and 2 female: C groups (Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand, Spain, Bolivia and Tonga) and D (Chile, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Japan and Cameroon) integrated by 5 teams each group of which classify a system of keys 2 per group.

In total, there will be 100 male players and 100 female players who can be in the fields of the Tecnópolis and the CENARD, the two venues chosen by Buenos Aires to celebrate the new discipline.
