The OC is ready for the 13th WUC Futsal
BRAGA - With 14 men’s teams and 5 women’s teams registered for the 13th World University Futsal Championship, the Portuguese city of Braga and the University of Minho are about to kick off one of the most anticipated World University Championships of the year in the FISU sporting events calendar of 2012.
Preparing for the opening ceremony and kick-off of the championship which will take place on Saturday August 18th, the Organising Committee has started setting up its offices, accrediting the volunteers and finalising all preparations.
The first delegations, namely Brasil and Portugal, have already been accredited and other teams will be in the days to come. First test matches have been organised as well as training sessions for the teams that already arrived.

With a very experienced team of organisers and volunteers, Braga hopes to offer the participants the best World University Futsal Championship ever and will also be watching closely the World University Chess Championship organised by the University of Minho in Guimaraes (20km away from Braga) at the same time, transforming Portugal into a center for International University Sports competitions in the weeks to come.
Important also to remember is that all the games of the WUC Futsal will be streamed live on the OC website at http://www.wuc2012.uminho.pt/.
