Siġġiewi Futsal were crowned Enemed Challenger League champions in May after seeing off St George’s 3-2 in the play-off final. The team led by Paul Bugeja had a memorable season because this was the team’s first experience in local futsal but on this day St George’s adopted a never-say-die attitude but they failed to restore parity in the end. The final was played in the Pavilion of the National Sports School. It was a well balanced game that offered a spectacle to all those present until the end. Siġġiewi had Justin Theuma notching a brace while Wallace Oliveira was also on the mark, and Tiago Rodriguez and Luiz Lopez were St George’s scorers. After the game, FMA president Mark Borg presented the trophy to Siggiewi captain Brandon Debono.
