For many decades, the futsal global community has hoped to see our amazing sport at the senior Olympics, either as a summer or winter sport. A breakthrough happened in 2018, when Futsal was included as a sport in the Youth Olympics for the first time in 2018 in Argentina. The men’s competition was won Brazil, runners-up was Russia, and Egypt finished in third-place. In the women’s tournament, Portugal won, Japan were the runners-up, and third-place was Spain. Ten teams competed, both male and female, with a total of 72,606 spectators present for the male tournament and 43,814 for the female competition. The next time Futsal will feature will be in 2026 in Senegal.
The campaign, however, continues to get futsal recognised and promoted to the senior Olympics, and a petition has been getting recognition and support. The campaign was brought to our attention by Brazilian professional futsal club, Magnus Futsal, and was created by futsal coach Andre Caro.
