AUS: “Welcome to the best Series Futsal tournament yet,” says CEO

Futsal Oz CEO and founder Peter Parthimos says that this weekend’s Series Futsal Australia tournament will be the best ever.

Utilising two venues across Melbourne, it is set to be the most exotic three-day futsal tournament ever held, with eight of the women’s matches to be held on a temporary playing ground within the Arnold Classic multi-sports convention at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

All other 40 futsal mens and women’s games will be held at the Thomastown Futsal Oz Stadium.

The Arnold Classic playing field has been put together by the hard-working staff at Futsal Oz, creating an awesome court within a world-famous festival.

Seventeen teams from around Australia will compete in the national tournament, with teams coming from as far as West Australia to try and win the crown.

Series Futsal CEO Parthimos can not wait for the games to begin.

“We have created a fantastic ground within the Arnold Classic precinct,” said Parthimos.

“There’s going to be a tremendous atmosphere within the Exhibition Centre – there’s lots going on with a range of other sporting events taking place. I feel that futsal, and in particular the women’s matches, will be one of the real highlights on Friday and Saturday.

“And there’s also plenty going on at Thomastown too – it’s hard for me because I really want to be at both venues to watch all of the games!

“The men’s competition is sure to be the fiercest yet. Group A, dubbed the ‘Group of Death’ will be fascinating. There are so many good clubs and I know they all want to be playing in front of the big crowd on Sunday afternoon.

“But I can guarantee that whatever games you are watching, you’re going to be in for a treat. There’s no doubt that this is going to be the best Series Futsal Australia ever held.”
