To celebrate the UEFA Futsal Champions League Final Four kicking off this weekend, we’ve launched our new feature – the Friday Futsal Quiz!! (We might change the day…)
To get us going, we’ve selected team names from the UEFA Futsal Champions League history and some made up names that would be more suitable for fantasy or 5-a-side… Can you spot the real ones among the fakes? Take the quiz and send us your results – shout outs for anyone who passes (80%).
Unlucky – you only reached the Elite round…
