Three time National Champions "Shooting Stars" (U16Girls). 

20th. Futsal National Championship concludes after four days of intense competition!

ANAHEIM, California -- The 20th USFF National Championship concluded Sunday, July 17th. after four days of intense and exciting competition. The final game was the men’s division, which was won by ServCorp over World United, a former three-timer winner, by a score of 4-2. With the growth of Futsal accelerating so rapidly over the last five years, so has the competition. ServCorp represents the fifth different state association to win the National Title in as many years. At the youth level the U16 Girls “Shooting Stars” team from Massachusetts, who lost last years championship game on Penalty Kicks, came back to win it third National Title in four years with an impressive 4 – 1 victory.

However, all the games in every division over the course of this event were well played and well attended. It is anticipated that this anniversary championship was attended by a total of over 7,000 participants and spectators alike. This support was most likely bolstered by the fact that there was quite a cross-representation of teams from regions throughout the U.S. Six out of eight regions were represented in these finals.

Fifty referees, from various locations across the country, were invited to participate in this tournament, including two international quest referees as well as two U.S. FIFA officials. These referees, with their combined CONCACAF and FIFA World Championship experience, certainly enhanced the officiating at this event.

U.S. Futsal congratulates all the teams that participated  for their hard work dedication and "Fair Play" throughout the competition.
