REPORT: KL Bar Futsal Competition 2013

This inaugural Futsal Competition was held on 8 June 2013 at Allrounder Indoor Soccer Centre, Petaling Jaya. The competition, which was open to members of the Malaysian Bar and pupils-in-chambers only, was intended to be an annual one. 16 teams registered for the men’s category and 2 teams for ladies.

The State Bars of Kelantan, Terengganu and Malacca took part and by pure coincidence ended up in the same group after the pre-games draw. There was a good mix of young and more senior players. The mens section saw competitive action but fair play and camaraderie overall. Good skills and teamwork were shown particularly by Strubbles FC, Kelantan Bar and Enjoi. Kelantan Bar beat Strubbles FC in the semi-finals after an exciting match, coming back from 2-4 down to win on penalties. The final was a tight affair with Kelantan Bar edging Enjoi after both teams played their hearts out.

The 2 ladies’ teams played 2 matches against each other for a winner by aggregate score format. The matches ended 2-1 each and extra time could not separate the teams. In the nail-baiting penalty shoot-out, the more experienced Ultra Sonics held out to win. The ladies were overall winners when the Malay Mail, who covered the whole event, chose them as the main news.

The results and winners for the KL Bar Futsal Competition 2013 were:

Women's Category
