This was the first Futsal Inter-University Tournament that Massey University has run after the discontinuation of the Inter-University League in 2009.
Unitec managed to win first place after beating YMCA 6 1 in the Semi-Final and Auckland University by 4 to 1 in the Final.
The Massey University team did well in the group stages by beating both YMCA teams but lost the semi-final game to Auckland by 3 to 1 and to YMCA B by 6 to 4 in the 3rd/4th placement game. Overall, it was a very successful day and we hope to have MIT and AUT on board in the future.
Final placements were as follows:
- Auckland University
- Massey University
- YMCA B
- YMCA A
