With every passing day, the plethora of football talent and potential prevalent in Southeast Asia is beginning to showcase itself to the rest of the world. Now, PUMA, one of the world’s leading sports brands in footwear apparel and accessories, is the latest in line to introduce a unique football tournament which allows players to showcase their skills and carve out an identity on the turf

The inaugural PUMA FTBL cup took place across 3 countries starting with Malaysia on April 20th followed by Indonesia and Singapore, on April 28th. The tournament was split among two distinct age groups – an ‘Under 17’ segment, as well as an ‘Open Category’ segment, where there was no restriction on the age of players comprising the team.

Alongside a team-oriented 5-a-side futsal tournament, where teams engaged in the standard futsal competition against other teams, PUMA also introduced a 5-Skill challenge, designed to test the technique and individual skill sets which included juggling, dribbling and shooting. Points from each component contributed to each team’s total points.
