Futsal Carnival organiser targets record entries


10th July, 2018


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Youth Council (SYC) is hoping for record entries when it organises its President’s Cup Futsal Carnival that will be held for the first in the Interior of Sabah in Keningau, next month.

The much-anticipated tournament that enters its seventh edition this time around will be happening at the Patikang Futsal Club from August 4-5.

“We are targeting a total of 100 teams in the Men’s and Women’s category. The previous edition of the futsal carnival had received tremendous response where 98 teams took part in both categories. We expect it to be similar this time around,” deputy president of the Council, Azuwan Marjan, said at a press conference yesterday.

Azuwan said the decision to have it in Keningau was to add much excitement to the Visit Keningau Year 2018 as well as the potential to attract more women teams, especially from the Interior division.

“Like in the past, the event will be held ala carnival. Apart from futsal, there will be many more programmes such as exhibition booths by government agencies as well as young entrepreneurs from the Interior in particular,” he added. At the press conference, SYC Exco-cum-Futsal Carnival chairman Ag Marjohan Ag Amin, Information Chief Abqaree Fawwaz Abekan as well as SYC Exco members SueYee Sherlyn and Mohd Nur Hilmie Milus were also present.

“On the futsal tournament, we have also retained the concept that each participating team will be getting one set of jerseys.

He also said that the tournament themed “Tunjuk Bah Skill Mu” (Show Your Skills) is a platform to select teams to represent Sabah to the national level Youth Carnival, which is expected to be held later this year.

“The winning teams will represent Sabah Youth Council to the national level event,” he said. “For now, for the national level National Youth Sports Carnival, which will take place in Johor, has not been confirmed. So, we just have to wait and see,” he said.

Azuwan said that active state players between 2016 to 2018 or those who are playing in the National Futsal League are prohibited from playing in the tournament.

He said this was in line with the objective of the event which is to give youth a chance to show their potential in the sport.

Meanwhile, a total of RM11,000 will be up for grabs where the Men’s champions will receive RM3,000, trophy medals, jerseys and certificates, followed by RM2,000 and RM1,000 plus medals and certificates for the second and third placing and RM500 and certificates for the fourth placing.

In the Women’s category, the champions will take home RM2,000, trophy, medals, jerseys and certificates, RM1,200 and RM800 plus medals and certificates for the second and third-placed teams while the fourth best team will collect RM500 plus certificates.

The entry fee for the Men’s category is RM150 and Women’s event RM100. The closing date is on July 27. Contact SYC at 088-213559 (office), 013-8861086 (Secretariat), Ag Marjohan (014-5597741) or Osman Johari (011-33973877) for further information.
