FIFA Futsal World Cup Colombia 2016 match schedule

The match schedule for the FIFA Futsal World Cup Colombia 2016 has now been finalised. Less than a week after Ibague was removed from the list of host cities, both teams and fans now know where the tournament’s 52 matches will be played.
“FIFA and the Colombian Football Association have worked together to draw up a new schedule, with the games that were due to be played in Ibague being shared out among the other venues,” announced FIFA Event Manager Jaime Yarza. “Bucaramanga will now stage twice the number of group-phase matches than originally planned, giving its futsal fans even more opportunities to see some of the best teams in the world.”

Making a four-day visit to Colombia this week, FIFA representatives have engaged in discussions with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) on preparations for the upcoming FIFA Futsal World Cup, to be held in the country between 10 September and 1 October.
The inspection visit began on Tuesday in Ibague, where FIFA Event Manager Jaime Yarza, LOC Chairman and Colombian Football Association (FCF) General Manager Rodrigo Cobo, and Perla Alvarez of the Colombian Administrative Department of Sport (Coldeportes) met with the local authorities to check on the progress of construction work at the city's new mini stadium.
Following the inspection it was decided that the city should be removed from the list of venues, which left Bucaramanga, Medellin and Cali as the tournament's three host cities. The decision was announced at the press conference that concluded the inspection visit at the FCF's headquarters in Bogota on Friday.
"In sharing the views of the Colombian FA, the mayor and Coldeportes, we felt it was impossible for Ibague to continue as a host city of the World Cup," Yarza told the assembled media. "The previous administration failed to act on the promises it made and we have decided not to take any risks. We regret this course of action but it was the most prudent decision."

History
 
 
FIFA identified the potential of futsal by staging the first FIFA Futsal World Cup in the Netherlands in 1989.

Excellent technique, speedy reactions and precise passing are as much part of the game of futsal as the special

ball and the tight pitch. This attractive and booming sport, which is now played in over 100 countries, poses
 

particular challenges for the players and produces highly skilled players such as Brazil’s Ronaldinho, who




subsequently embarked on a stellar career on grass.

To date, the FIFA Futsal World Cup has made two stops in Europe (Netherlands 1989 & Spain 1996), two in Asia

(Hong Kong 1992 & Chinese Taipei 2004), one in Central America (Guatemala 2000) and 2008, for the first

time, in South America (Brazil). Thailand 2012 will be the third time it is hosted in Asia.

Brazil proved to be the dominant force at the first three editions, winning in the Netherlands in 1989, Hong

Kong in 1992 and Spain in 1996. At the fourth event in Guatemala in 2000, they were stopped from lifting the

trophy a fourth time, when Spain beat them in a thrilling final to become the new FIFA futsal World Cup

champions. Spain followed up their first futsal championship title with a second title in 2004, this time pipping

Italy at the post. In 2008, Brazil finally became futsal world champions for the fourth time after a narrow victory

before their home crowd over two-time world champions Spain. There were also fine performances from less

established football countries for whom the 5-a-side version offers a welcome opportunity to promote their

domestic game and shine in the international spotlight. In the most recent edition, in 2012 it was yet again Brazil

who, in a thrilling final in which they came from behind to beat Spain 3-2 after extra time, managed to retain

the trophy.

Although FIFA acknowledges the importance of futsal as a game in its own right, it has resisted the temptation

to diverge too far from the principles of 11-a-side football, designing the rules to ensure continuity with the

classic outdoor game.

Facts you need to know about the FIFA Futsal World Cup
 
1
 
 
 
In the most recent edition in 2012 there were 6 newcomers: Colombia, Kuwait, Mexico, Morocco, Panama, and

Serbia.
 
2
 
 
 
2008 hosts Brazil top the overall attendance record with a total of 292,161 spectators. They are closely followed by
 

Guatemala with 224,038 in 2000 however taking into account that in Guatemala 2000 only 40 matches were

played and in Brazil 2008 56 the highest average was therefore achieved in Guatemala with 5,601 per game




compared to Brazil 2008 with 5,217 per game.
 
3
   
2012 was Asia’s third time hosting the FIFA Futsal World Cup (Thailand 2012, Chinese Taipei 2004 and Hong Kong




1992). Europe have staged the event twice (Netherlands in 1989 and Spain in 1996) and South America and

North/Central America just one time each (Guatemala in 2000 and Brazil most recently in 2008).
 
4
 
 
 
43 teams have competed in the history of the Futsal World Cup. Only three teams have participated in all seven

editions: Brazil, Spain and Argentina.
 
5
 
 
 
Brazil have dominated the title leaderboard with five of the seven titles to date: 1989, 1992, 1996, 2008 and 2012.

Spain broke the consecutive wins by claiming the two victories in 2000 and 2004.
 

6 Three matches in the final competitions were decided on penalty shoot-outs, with Brazil being involved each time.






7
   
Brazils’ MANOEL TOBIAS is the only player to have won the adidas Golden Boot award (top scorer) and the adidas
 
Golden Ball award (best player) twice. All awards were in 1996 and 2000. He is the tournament’s top goalscorer




with a record 43 goals across all tournaments.
 
8
   
The adidas Golden Glove award for the best goalkeeper was introduced in 2008 and was awarded to Brazil’s




TIAGO.
 
9
   
The FIFA Futsal World Cup trophy was redesigned and launched in 2012. The previous trophy was introduced in

Guatemala in 2000 to replace the original trophy of 1989.
 
10
 
 
 
In the editions from 1989 to 2004 there were 16 teams and 40 matches. This changed in 2008 to 20 teams and 56

matches. 2012 there were even more teams, 24, but fewer matches, 52. This was because there was only one

group stage followed by three knock-out stages (round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals) and the play-off for

third place and the final. In 2008 there were four groups of five teams and two group stages which were followed

by the semi-finals, play-off for third place and the final.
 
11
 
 
 

In the inaugural tournament of 1989 in the Netherlands, the matches lasted 50 minutes two periods of 25




minutes. This was changed for the 1992 edition to 40 minutes (two periods of 20 minutes) of net playing time,

introducing the time-keeping.
 
12
 
 
 
As of 2012 the laws of the game allow nine substitutions compared to previously seven. Given the growing

popularity of futsal and the increasing number of competitions, as well as the usual format of competitions with

several matches back-to-back, there was a need to allow a greater number of players per match.
 
13
 
 
 
12 players (seven from USA and one each from Algeria, Canada, China PR, Costa Rica and Denmark) have played in
 

a FIFA Futsal World Cup and a FIFA World Cup™.






14
   
USA’s Tab Ramos, present in three FIFA World Cups™ (1990, 1994 and 1998) also played in the first FIFA Futsal
 
World Cup in 1989.
 

15 Algeria’s Lakhdar Belloumi, Denmark’s Brian Laudrup and USA’s Bruce Murray scored in both FIFA tournaments.






16
   
Nine referees have directed both matches of the FIFA Futsal World Cup and the FIFA World Cup™, Brazil’s




Romulado Arrpi Filho Belgium’s Ponnet, Chile’s Silva Arce, Denmark’s Nielsen, Hungary’s Vagner, Portugal’s Silva
 
Valente, Italy’s Agnolin and Pairetto, Spain’s Soriano Aladren. .
