“Futsal is the most famous sport in Mizoram and gives priority to skills and quick movement rather than size and height, and this is why the game is ideal for the Mizos,” said club owner Dustin Lalkulpuia.
The Northeast Futsal league will give a platform for the talented Mizo futsal players and a chance to play in bigger leagues as certain coaches and members of European clubs will be scouting for players, said Lalkulpuia.
“This league is a chance to show that the Mizo’s stand out in any kind of sports. Sport is the best tool for us to make ourselves known in the national level,” he added.
Ranajit Mahanta, Administrative Manager, Northeast Futsal League, said, “This league will not only create news in India but in the international level. The best futsal teams in England, France and Spain paid heed to the league as soon as they got the word.”
