The 3rd Allianz National Youth Futsal Invitational (ANYFI) will be staged in Davao City this month, organizers announced on Wednesday pending further details on exact dates.
The tournament, organized by Allianz PNB Life, in partnership with the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) and the Henry V. Moran Foundation (THVMF) will be played for the first time in the city and is expected to draw the finest futsal squads of the country.
Davao City, for one, is an emerging futsal force in recent times with its sterling performances in regional and national tournaments.
According to organizers, this annual sporting initiative encourages aspiring football payers to pursue their dreams, to not just excel in their hometowns, but to try and test their skills in international competitions as well.
The event will kick off with an official press launch this coming April 6 at the Marco Polo Hotel where the tournament’s final details will be announced.
In this year’s ANYFI, the organizers are finally launching the campaign in Davao City to boost the sports’ presence in Mindanao even further.
