Futsal Tournament - How It Will Go Down
Going to write about our futsal tournament and how it will go down.
Read my post about me joining, unknowingly, a futsal tournament here, http://www.personapaper.com/article/5163-joined-a-futsal-tournament---unknowingly .
So how will this tournament go down?
Basically, it is two divisions, Primera and Segunda (Premier and Secondary), made up of four teams each. Teams from the same division will meet twice and teams will meet the teams in the other division once. So that's ten games each team, single round robin format, top two teams move on on a cross-over semi-final round.
Since the primera teams are really better talent and skill wise, the segunda teams will have a 2.5 goal handicap in every match that a primera team and a segunda team will meet. Haven't matched up with a primera team yet but heard that they are really good. One match involving a primera teama nd a segunda team ended with a score of 13 - 4 for the primera team. Even with the 2.5 goal handicap, the primera team won... convincingly at that!!!
I think the handicaps for segunda teams will level the playing field to a certain degree but bear in mind, primera teams are made up of professional, semi-professional, and varsity players versus members of the segunda teams who are at the most, athletes/superfans that want to experience the game of futsal. All segunda teams have one or two professional futsal players but they can only do so much.
Anyway, next post, I'll talk about how our first two games went versus two segunda teams. Stay tuned!
