For the second year straight, Empire FC brings our one day competitive futsal tournament to Elmhurst College. This year's tournament has representation from ten local clubs, including empire, and has a little over forty teams registered. Tournament director Matt Tunis says:
"Futsal is a style of fast paced soccer that is now making a splash in the United States. It encourages players to use their technical abilities to get out of small spaces and to do it under constant pressure in a short amount of time on a fast surface. We are excited to watch some of the talent we have coming out this weekend, and want to wish good luck to all teams participating!"
The tournament kicks of Sunday at 7:00am with the U8 Coed group and ends at 8:00pm with the U14 girls. Here's to a great weekend of soccer!
