KUCHING: Arena Sukan will be holding the Alan Vest Junior futsal tournament on June 13 and 14.

The sports centre at Jalan Wan Alwi here is now calling for participants to register early.

“The tournament will be held from 8am to 5pm each day. There will be three categories - U-12, U-15 and U-17,” Arena Sukan director Rosemarie Wong said.

The tournament is to be held in conjunction with Alan Vest’s visit to Sarawak.

“Vest is no stranger to the sporting fraternity of Sarawak and was largely responsible for raising the football standard in Sarawak … to a point that we were a team to be reckoned with in FAM competitions,” Wong said.

“To a man who has contributed so much to Sarawak football and given us much pride in our team, Arena Sukan has decided to name this tournament in his honour,” she added.

Vest will declare close the tournament.

“All futsal enthusiasts are encouraged to join this tournament for seven-player teams,” said Wong.

Registration forms are obtainable at Arena Sukan’s office (082-363577 or 017-8087017).

The closing date for registration is June 11 at 6pm.
