Canada Soccer Futsal National Team ID camp to be held in National Capital Region

Posted on 24 August 2018 in Futsal Team

Canada Soccer have announced their roster for the National Futsal Team’s identification camp in Gatineau, Québec from 6-9 September. Coach Kyt Selaidopoulos has selected players who competed at this year’s 2018 Futsal Canadian Championship, including the first-ever selections from Territorial Member Associations in Yukon and Nunavut.

The camp is the first opportunity for Selaidoplouos to begin to assemble the squad that will build on the success of the 2016 Concacaf Futsal Championship team who came within one point of qualifying for the 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup.

“We are looking for players who are committed to this program on the road to the 2020 FIFA Futsal World Cup,” said Selaidopoulos, Canada Soccer’s National Futsal Team Head Coach. “There is a core group of players who competed in Costa Rica (2016 Concacaf Futsal Championship) as well as a new wave of talented futsal players who will compete to be part of the 14 who will attend the 2020 Concacaf Futsal Championship.”

The camp opportunity brings players with club experience into the National Team environment, most for the first time. Selaidopoulos hopes to provide the players with an introduction to the expectations of Canada Soccer’s National Team program in a short training window.

“These players will be given the required tools to continue to develop as futsal players and an overview of the professionalism required to continue to advance Futsal in this country,” said Selaidopoulos. “It will be up to these players to carry the torch and continue to push their own training environments if we are to be successful in 2020.”
