Futsal (Indoor Soccer) National Championship in KC

Hi! We are FC International, a Futsal (5-a-side indoor soccer) team from Saint Paul, MN. Our players, whose homelands are spread across the globe (Guatemala, Somalia, India, etc.), unite under a shared passion for the game.

At the recent North Regional Tournament, our team qualified for the National Futsal Championships located in Kansas City.

We need $2700 to cover trip costs — transportation, lodging, food, tournament fees — for players who cannot afford it. 

The tournament starts on Feb. 14, 2020. We need to raise the funds by then.

This is the first opportunity for our team to compete at the highest level — and for some players, the last opportunity, as they will be returning home (from foreign exchange) next year.
