Philippe Diallo, the president of the French Football Federation (FFF), extends heartfelt congratulations to the outstanding French futsal team, its players, coach, and staff for scripting a new chapter in French football history. The team has secured its inaugural qualification for the final phase of the FIFA Futsal World Cup, marking a momentous accomplishment that reflects the culmination of dedicated efforts throughout the qualifying campaign.
Diallo acknowledges the collective work not only of the national team but also of the France pole, clubs, and the National Technical Direction. This milestone aligns seamlessly with the FFF’s ongoing commitment to futsal development, as demonstrated by the significant initiatives launched this season. Futsal, the second major priority for the FFF after the advancement of women’s football, holds a prominent position as the primary school sport for both girls and boys, engaging nearly 200,000 young players.
