Due to difficulties in acquiring VISA’s necessary for the global finals of Red Bull Neymar Jr’s 5 in Praia Grande, Brazil, they opted for the original version of the 5 vs 5 – knockout game of Futsal.

Instead of a global competition, the focus in 2019 is to hold a more geographically spread range of qualifiers across the country, in search for the best 5 vs 5 futsal team in Maldives.
