September 20th 2019

The 20th of September is a pretty unremarkable day in the annals of history. But it does mean it is just a month until ordinary players from around the world complete the journey from the 3G Pitch to the World Stage.

Notable things that have happened on the 2oth October include the first ever Cannes film festival and just about the only sporting first we could find for the 20th September was the very first game of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 1933.

So, if the 20th September is nondescript, then the same cannot be said of 20th October. Because, the 20th October is when the new kings of the 6 a side world will be crowned.

The eyes of the world will be on the gorgeous city of Rethmyno, in Crete as 40 countries battle it out over eight days of what promises to be the best competition anywhere in the world this year.

This year Leisure Leagues players from around the world will be in teams from Europe, Africa, America and Asia as they bid for glory.

They will all be looking to wrestle the title from Germany, who won the inaugural title in Lisbon last year. The action was incredible, as the picture above and this video shows

Preparations for the World Cup 2019 are now well underway.

A couple of weeks ago, the groups were drawn at a ceremony beamed all around the world – and England, Scotland and Wales, all including ordinary LL players were all handed tricky tests.

The action gets underway on 12th October, and all games will be broadcast live on the ISF Website.

The Final Countdown is on…..and next year, it could be you.
