Mercantile Futsal

The first ever Mercantile Futsal Tournament will be held on the 3rd & 4th of December at the Futsal World, Colombo 02.

This was announced at the Press Conference held at the Football House, Colombo 07.

The Mercantile Futsal Tournament is the brainchild of the newly appointed President of the Mercantile Football Association, Saif Yusoof.
