New Sports Podcast hosted by Canadian Futsal Coach


When Covid-19 shut down futsal programs across the country this past spring, one club that suffered heavily was the Brazilian Futsal Club (BFC) in lower mainland BC. After strong growth throughout the 2019/20 season the club were forced to cease operations shortly after the pandemic started.

But there came a silver lining.

Brazilian-Canadian futsal coach, Alvaro De Almeida, who was one of two Technical Directors at BFC has co-created a new futsal and soccer focused podcast called “Play Your Game.” Alongside Almeida on the microphone is Andrea Benton, who was BFC’s General Manager. The show launched at the end of August and is gaining solid number so far.

One of the first episodes featured Futsal Canada’s Kris Fernandes to talk about a series of futsal topics here in Canada including female futsal development, indigenous programs, and education for coaches and referees.
Former Vancouver Futsal Association Head, Michael D’Agostino, recently completed an episode talking about his journey and tips on becoming a sports entrepreneur.

Check out Play Your Game here. It’s available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and other platforms.
