Japan's chance to host futsal World Cup more than Iran

Tehran, Oct 6, IRNA - Chairman of the technical and development committee of Iran's futsal said that Japan's chance of hosting futsal World Cup in 2020 will be higher than Iran due to national determination and appropriate hardware facilities.

Abbas Torabian said on Saturday that Iran was not lucky to host the futsal World Cup, adding, 'Mehdi Taj, the head of the footbal federation recently had a meeting with FIFA chairman Gianni Infantino and after returning to Iran, I have not talked to him.'

'My personal impression is that Japan's chance of getting this hosting is much higher because the national determination made in Japan to host is unmatched,' he said. 'They have established a headquarters for the competition for 9 months.'

The chairman of the technical and development committee of the futsal said, 'Unlike them in our country, only the Football Federation and for a short period of time the Ministry of Sports and Youth tried to host the games. Globally, hosting a global games will make a difference in Iran's football, and for the long time the world's news will be allocated to the Iranian futsal.
