Football Queensland (FQ) is excited to announce that Cornubia Vikings Futsal will join seven other Brisbane and Logan-based futsal clubs for the 2019 season, kicking off in October.
In its inaugural year, the club based at Cornubia Park Sports Centre will cater to futsal players in the Logan and Beenleigh corridor, operating on two nights each week (Mondays and Thursdays).
Logan’s first indoor sports centre, Cornubia Park Sports Centre, boasts international standard courts and has become a well-established name throughout Logan City and the sporting community.
President Armando Cacace said the introduction of Cornubia Vikings Futsal will allow more players to participate in the sport in the area.
“Cornubia Vikings Futsal is committed to establishing futsal opportunities that will continue the success of this sport throughout Queensland,” Cacace said.
“Futsal represents significant benefit for the development and growth of a player’s skills, technical ability and fitness for both futsal and football players.
“With the introduction of Cornubia Vikings Futsal, players in the Logan/Beenleigh corridor between Brisbane and the Gold Coast now have the opportunity to play and have access to the FFA futsal pathway and player development program.”
The club will offer a range of both social and competitive leagues in its initial year, providing opportunities for players of all ages and skill levels.
Catering to futsal players aged between eight and 18, Cornubia Vikings Futsal also has dedicated girls’ competitions for players aged 13 – 15 as well as Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Senior competitions.
“Cornubia Vikings Futsal social and competitive leagues are suitable for all ages and skill levels as the emphasis is on participation and fun for those not accustomed to the game,” Cacace said.
“For those more experienced, the leagues will also cater to the more elite skills levels as competitions will endeavour to challenge all players.”
Cacace said as well as offering participation opportunities for players, the club is also focused on providing pathways for players to progress to a higher level, as well as development opportunities for referees and coaches.
“Like football, futsal has a pathway, allowing both teams and individual players to progress,” Cacace said.
“Cornubia Vikings Futsal will support both team and talented player pathways, as well as education and development opportunities for coaches and referees to ensure that the talent at all levels within the sport is increased, and given opportunities to be identified and improved.
“Cornubia Vikings Futsal has for the competitive player a distinct player pathway into representative national and international tournaments, with progression from local competitions to Queensland State Titles and leagues, followed by National Championships and finally international tours and tournaments.”
