Football (or Soccer, as more commonly known in America) is becoming more and more popular in the Philippines. It’s a good thing – because I personally, love football. That’s why I’m happy to announce that Pinoy Teens New Media will cover the upcoming Futsal Tournament in Davao starting July 17, 2012.

What is Futsal, you might ask:

Futsal is a variant of association football that is played on a smaller pitch and mainly played indoors. Philippines, and Davao City in particular is a little unfortunate, having a limited number of Football Fields at hand (Ateneo / Agro).

Futsal is the perfect way to experience Football right now among the followers and fanatics of this sport due to the limited spaces given.
