San Francisco, CA – December 2019 - This week Team IP signed a multi-year partnership with U.S. Futsal to become the exclusive provider for event merchandise, decorated apparel, branded products, and online retail integration.
Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard-court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football due to the surface of the field. The surface, ball, and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
United States Futsal (USFF) has been governing the sport of Futsal in the United States since 1981. Futsal (Five-a-Side Soccer) is “The Way the World Plays Indoor Soccer” and is the international form of indoor soccer approved by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). It is played in all continents of the world by over 100 countries with 12 million players.
This network of competition gives youth the opportunity to compete at various levels, allowing good athletes an avenue to participate at a higher level of competition. Participating teams range from the under twelve (U-12) to senior level play for both men and women. This not only furthers the sport but also teaches young people the concept of teamwork, giving them a healthier outlook for other life experiences.
Team IP is excited to add U.S. Futsal to its list of partners. Team IP will be designing branded apparel and event-specific merchandise for all events as well as offering championship apparel online after the events.
“Adding U.S. Futsal as a partner is a great win for Team IP. We are excited and honored to be associated with a sport that is creating such a large buzz across the country.”
