We are proud to be sponsoring a team from Eastbury School in Barking and Dagenham at the International Futsal Tournament in Sardinia in April 2014.
“We were delighted when Higgins offered to sponsor the team. With sixteen boys and three members of staff travelling, we needed to get as much sponsorship as possible – to ‘kit everyone out’ was very expensive; we’re extremely grateful to Higgins for their support.” Wayne Baldacchino
The name 'Futsal' simply combines the Spanish words for ‘Hall’ - Sala and ‘Football’ - Futbol into Futsal. It is a five-a-side game, played with hockey sized goals and a smaller ball with a reduced bounce. As part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility Higgins felt this was a good activity to sponsor as it promotes team working, awareness, fitness, skills and a commitment to the community to the young people involved. We will of course be following the team’s progress with great interest.
