The two teams participating in this year’s competition were reigning champions, Olimpia SK FC from Saskatoon and LRUSP from Lloydminster. The format for this year’s competition was a home and away series, with the teams facing off in two matches and the winner being named by the most goals scored over the two game series.
The first game was a fast paced battle with Olimpia SK FC establishing and holding the lead through the match. A few close misses by LRUSP could have kept the game much closer than the eventual 5-0 end score.
The second game of the series saw a very technical approach by both teams, and Olimpia SK FC was able to capitalize on key scoring chances and once again, blanked LRUSP 5-0.

We want to wish the best of luck to one of our own Jay Tomchuk who has been invited to a National Futsal Camp in Costa Rica with the Canadian National Futsal Team.
Jay was part of the Olimpia SK Futsal team that won a Silver Medal at the 2017 National Futsal Championships! and is currently a player in the SFL Adult Mens Division – We are extremely proud to have Jay be the 1st Saskatchewan player identified for the National set up and wish you the best of luck in this amazing opportunity. We know you will do us proud. This is just the start of many more successful futsal stories for our province!

Finally, what was even more exciting was to see the quality on display and the smiles and enjoyment of the players facing good competition and participating in fast paced games. The Youth Elite Futsal Tournament was essential to provide the community a new sport option that meets their expectations, use of the free time, and practice Futsal (FIFA) that helps children and youth people, to have more solidarity, friendly, and be respectful to the difference, and be better citizens. We are building intercultural spaces in our community in Saskatoon and Saskatchewan…the tournament was a resounding success in all aspects and this was possible to the financial contribution of Saskatchewan LOTTERIES.
