“Futsal” started in 1930 when Juan Carlos Ceriani, a teacher in Montevideo, Uruguay, created a version of indoor football for recreation in YMCAs. This new sport was originally developed for playing on basketball courts, and a rule book was published in September 1933. His goal was to create a team game that could be played indoor or outdoor but that was similar to football.
This game is in growing stage and quite popular among youths. By realizing the fact that the future of the game can be only be insured if every level and part of society embrace it, we choose the theme of the event where the corporate level people, who follow and love the sports but cannot play the game due to profession and time bound come together and compete with each other. We believe that this type of event will broaden the scope of this game and also help the corporate level people to forget the burden of the work and improve the teamwork, understanding, and respect for each other as all people play as a team on the behalf of the organization.
Last year, we organized the biggest futsal event not only in the history of Biratnagar but whole of eastern region, “Birat Futsal Cup 2073” (An Inter-Corporate Futsal Tournament). It was successful in setting benchmark for any events to occur in the future. Our motive behind organizing this event was to take this growing game to people who cannot give continuity to the game due to some personal and professional reasons and increase the gaming culture in every part and level of society making this city a sporting hub. The response of the futsal lovers, fans, sponsors, general public and players has shown and ensured that we were very successful in the cause. We had 128 players from 16 different teams participated in that historical event which has witnessed the great media coverage.
As per the main objective of Birat Futsal cup is to make a yearly game for futsal players across eastern Nepal and also to make Biratnagar as a sporting hub city. The event is expecting to witness great media coverage as we have an energetic marketing team to popularize the event and make it a success.
