Addresses were heard from Chairman of Tournaments Basha Awad, SVGFF president Venold Coombs, and SVG Director of Physical Education and Sports Nelson Hillocks.
The 2017 SVGFF Futsal Community League championship will be contested by sixteen (16) teams in four Zones, with East Kingstown and West Kingstown clashing in the opening game.
