"This is an incredible opportunity to showcase some of the best young international futsal players in the world as well as here in the U.S.," said PFL Commissioner, Keith Tozer. "In recent years futsal has experienced great growth here in North America and we are very excited to host one of the most iconic brands globally with FC Barcelona, as well as talented teams from Australia and USA at the beautiful Allen Event Center here in Texas."
A five-a-side derivative of soccer, futsal is played on a hard court, with out-of-bounds lines rather than the walls associated with American indoor soccer. A weighted ball reduces bounce to produce a vibrant, deft style that highlights individual flair and controlled passing.
"We are excited to be working with the PFL to conduct our preseason campaign for the 2020 season," said FCB Sporting Director, Txus Lahoz. "Due to their professionalism and desire to grow the sport in the United States, this is a great opportunity for our club and the sport of futsal as a whole."
