The debate about the rule changes surfaced…

Javi Rodriguez, journalist, not legend, caused a stir on Tuesday when he tweeted with certainty that throw-ins were returning to futsal. It once again sparked a big debate in the futsal community, with the majority of people against the change, including Spain captain, Carlos Ortiz. The rule is definitely up for debate, but nothing is yet confirmed… let’s hope there is a proper discussion before any major changes like this are made!

Wattcell Futsal Club win Scotish league

Wattcell were crowned champions of Scotland for the second time and will play in next season’s UEFA Futsal Champions League. Give them a follow on twitter – a very good twitter feed!!

Here is the table and with 1 game remaining, they find themselves 5 points clear of last year’s winners, TMT. Congratulations!
