The Bethel College men’s soccer team will practice to break the Guinness™ World Record for the longest Futsal game in the world on Saturday, March 12 in Goodman Gymnasium. It’s about one month before the team’s official attempt which begins on Sunday, April 10 at noon in the Wiekamp Gym.

 

The team will try to break the current record of 32 hours, 20 minutes with their effort of a nonstop 35-hour game. Fans are encouraged to cheer on the players from 8-9 p.m. on Monday, April 11, when the world record will be broken.

 

Also, in preparation for the world record attempt, the Pilots travelled to Cincinnati, Ohio Feb. 19-20 for the United States Futsal Federation Midwest Regional Championship. The Pilots went undefeated, won the final 9-1 and brought home a prestigious trophy.

 

“I am very proud of our guys” says coach Pinto. “We won a very competitive tournament in great fashion and now our guys look forward to April 10-11 when they will show the world that they love playing the game.”

 

Futsal is a form of indoor soccer that is played in more than 100 countries around the world on a basketball-sized court. It is played with a special “low-bounce” ball, which requires each player to use more skills and quicker reflexes.
