Maori futsal team trials

9:21 pm on 11 July 2009

The first national Maori futsal team will be picked this weekend.

Waatea News reports futsal is a trimmed-down version of indoor football, with a heavier ball and teams of five players.

National squad manager Max Hall says there is a spot for a Maori team in the Viking Futsal Pan Pacific championships in Christchurch next month.

He says trials for the Maori squad will run as part of the northern North Island regional finals at the Otara Recreation Centre on Sunday.
