The 12th Catalan Futsal Festival has started with the 6th Final of the Catalan Futsal Teams, which the Sports Area and Catalan Futsal Teams of the Catalan Futsal League has celebrated in the Cultural Center Auditorium in Martorell. The event brought together more than 300 people and was an emotional tribute to the players and coaches of the Catalan national teams who this year once again enjoyed a historic season with six championships and two runners-up.

Just a year ago, the nine Catalan futsal teams celebrated an unprecedented success, after playing in all nine possible finals and winning six. A fact that seemed unrepeatable, but 365 days later, at the 6th Closing of the Catalan Futsal Teams, it was celebrated that of the last 18 finals of the Spanish Territorial Futsal Teams Championships, Catalonia has contested 17.

More than 100 players from the Benjamí, Aleví women’s and men’s, Children’s women’s and men’s, U16 women’s and men’s and U19 women’s and men’s selections were present at the event, surrounded by family members and coaching staff. A staff led by Jordi Gay, together with Jordi Barrero, Rubén González, Roc Jordana, Rubén Jaén, Estefa Jémez, Laia Fernández, Iván Calle, Horacio Álvarez, Andreu Falomí, Chusi Manchado, Juani Mora, Clàudia Ramos and the often invisible work, but essential by Iván Vázquez, Pere Molina and physiotherapists Arnau Casas and Àlex Petralia.

The event has started with a video summary of the nine 2022-2023 championships. Teams, pineapples, celebrations, lots of goals, great saves, chants and lots of happiness.

Next, it was the turn to thank and honor two special people for the Catalan national teams in recent years. Rubén González, after 6 seasons in the national team structure, leaves with the men’s Under-19 title under his arm. On the other hand, Jordi Gay, chief architect of the evolution and successes of the Sports Area and Catalan National Teams of the Catalan Futsal League, decides to put an end to it having won 29 championships and 13 sub-championships in 14 seasons and , above all, having created and established a project and a very marked style for the Catalan futsal teams in Catalonia.

Next, the general director of the Catalan Football Federation and director of the Catalan Futsal League, José Miguel Calle, thanked Rubén González and Jordi Gay for their effort and dedication to the national teams and the Catalan Football Federation, but above all he has valued his humanity.

In addition, Calle wanted to convey to players, coaches and family members, that the eight trophies present in the Cultural Center of Martorell are a cause for celebration, but even more so the way in which the nine championships have been contested with struggle, deliver and respect for teammates, rivals, coaches and referees.

The second part of the closing was a recognition of all the selections. One by one they went up to the stage of the auditorium, to collect each member a four-striped t-shirt from the Catalan national team at the hands of professional coaches Juanlu Alonso, Imanol Arregui, Josán González, Diego Ríos and Santi Valladares. Previously, a video summary of each team in their respective championship was shown.

In order to conclude the event and as is tradition, all the players accompanied by all the technicians, federation leaders and professional coaches took a family photo as a souvenir.
