(MAFF President, Naser, pictured with finalists Unitec and Auckland University teams)

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:

  1. Unitec
  2. Auckland University
  3. Massey University
  4. YMCA B
  5. YMCA A
