Earlier today, the Spanish club C.D.S. Huelva qualified for tomorrow’s finals  in deaf futsal’s Deaf Champions League in Graz, Austria.  They will meet the winner of a semifinal between two teams from Germany.

They beat G.S.V. Karlsruhe 10 – 4 to qualify.  The Spanish side leapt to an early 5 – 0 lead.  The German side played a very defensive game, only getting shooting opportunities off fast breaks.  On Facebook, Huelva  said this style of play was easy for the team to deal with.

 

The night before the start of competition, Huelva were selected as the co-hosts of the 2016 edition of the Deaf Champions League.  The men’s and women’s competition will also be played in Portugal.  It is the first time the competition will be held in two countries. José María Benabat was the major force behind getting Huelva  selected as hosts.
