TO THE FUTSAL FAMILY IN THE WORLD
The Organization of The World Games 2013 Cali, to be held from July 25 to August 4, 2013, reports that FUTSAL will be an exhibition of sports to be played simultaneously with just these orbitals.
The venue for this tournament is to be determined between the municipalities of Buga and Palmira, which are very close to the headquarters of The Games and competition will be eight (8) men’s national teams, open class.
For the selection process that will take part quintets will take into account the criteria of the World Association of Futsal, AMF, with the approval of the Colombian Federation, Fecolfutsalón, the entity that conducted the relevant management to make room the microfútbol, as it is called a colloquial way in our country.
We welcome you the FUTSAL to The World Games 2013, the biggest sporting event after the Olympics, and hopefully in the near future may be part of the official disciplines of the fair.

International World Games Association
Founded in 1981, the International World Games Association (IWGA) is a non-governmental international organization constituted under Swiss law. Made up of International Sports Federations, the IWGA administers a quadrennial and multidisciplinary sports event, The World Games, which aspires to equal and exceed the importance of world championships organized by each federation individually. The principal aim of the IWGA is to develop the popularity of the sports governed by its Member Federations, to improve their prominence through excellent sporting achievements, and to conserve all the traditional values of sport. Since its founding meeting in Seoul, Korea, IWGA membership increased from 12 to 33 International Sports Federations. For an International Federation to become a Member of the IWGA or its membership of Sportaccord with the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) is prerequisite. The IWGA is a member of Sportaccord and represented on the GAISF Council. Another requirement is that the sports, or disciplines of sports, proposed by the federations for inclusion in The World Games are not currently on the Sports Program of the Games of the Olympiad. In the year following The World Games, the IWGA Annual General Meeting elects an Executive Committee of six members. This board coordinates and supervises all matters related to The World Games on behalf of the Member Federations. The board’s tasks include making recommendations for the selection of suitable hosts and serving as the permanent liaison between the IWGA and the hosts’ Organizing Committees. The IWGA Medical Commission deals with the implementation of measures in the fight against doping. In close collaboration with the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency, the IWGA makes every effort to ensure ‘clean sport’ at The World Games. The IWGA and member federartions accepts CAS (Court of Arbitration of Sport).
