The fifth-annual Mayor’s International Futsal Cup, Indianapolis, the largest adult futsal tournament in the United States, returned to the Circle City over Labor Day weekend from Aug. 31-Sept. 2. The tournament takes place outdoors in downtown Indianapolis at 201 North Capitol Avenue, in the shadow of the historic Indiana Statehouse. Before the competition took place Indiana Futsal Director Justin Becht had this to say,
“We are excited to host this event for a fifth year in a row. It continues to amaze me that we live in a city that allows for a three-day event hosted in the heart of downtown that is creating the space for futsal. This event is about bringing communities together to celebrate the beautiful game and this year’s Cup will be the most competitive yet.”
Thirty-two teams, both men’s and women’s, participated in this year’s edition. In 2018, Brazil captured the title on the men’s side, while the USA hoisted the women’s trophy. The Bahrain men’s team and Chile women’s squad took home first-place hardware in 2017.
The Mayor’s International Futsal Cup is free to attend every year. A DJ provides live music throughout the tournament and on-site vendors offer food and drink options.
