ISF WSC futsal was first introduced in 2007 and hosted by Brazil, but it took five years to hold another tournament (organised in 2012 by Turkey). Besides Brazil and Turkey, the two other hosts were Italy (2014) and Croatia (2016).
Israel will welcome the 5th edition of ISF WSC Futsal.
We are looking forward to meeting the ISF youth in Rishon LeZion and seeing them battle for the title of the World School Champions. Follow the WSC at facebook.com/ISFWSC.Futsal.
