08/09/2011

The agreement takes effect on July 1st 2011 and the brand new Select Futsal Super ball is to be debuted at the US Futsal National Championships this July in Anaheim, CA.

The United States FUTSAL Federation (USFF) is the governing body for the growing sport of futsal in the United States. USFF is the only indoor soccer game sanctioned by FIFA - the International Federation of soccer Associations - the organizer of the World Cup etc. The USFF organize the league play of all ages and skill levels and welcomes players from all backgrounds.

As a part the agreement between Select Sport America and USFF, Select will supply the Futsal balls for all matches during all sanctioned US Futsal events including the Regional and the National Championships.

Select was chosen by USFF as the official ball due to their long history of innovation and commitment to making high quality soccer and Futsal balls.

Select Sport was founded in 1947 and is the inventor of the modern soccer ball and contributed to setting the standards used by FIFA today.

Futsal in itself is a simple game that requires a flat surface, two teams, and a ball.

Futsal is a great skill developer, demanding quick reflexes, fast thinking and pin point passing. It is an exciting game for children as well as adults. Just by playing with the ball develops precise ball control and technical skill, agility, lightening reflexes and decision making. As the balls have less bounce they tend to stay in play longer and promote close ball control. After playing in enclosed areas and learning to think and react quickly, players find when they play the full field soccer games they react well under pressure. Hence the ball is the most important piece of equipment on the court.

The Select Futsal Super has set itself apart in an extremely competitive market by using only the finest materials available. The highly durable yet soft hand-sewn FPUS 1700 Pearl casing delivers uncompromising touch and performance that the world’s best players have come to expect. The design of the Futsal Super incorporates Select’s world-renown and classic star design accompanied by subtle “carbon” detailing making the ball look unlike any other.

(Quote from Alexander J.C. Para) “Futsal has experienced substantial growth both in the US and across the globe over the past several years. It is very important that US Futsal stays in the forefront of development. Setting the stage for our nation’s premier Futsal tournament requires forming partnerships with organizations that bring a level of professionalism and exposure that elevate the status of futsal here in the US. Select’s international recognition and reputation will certainly go right along with this theme”.
