CDM futsal, the good side of football!
When we talk about football, we use to think of football millionaires, revenues with many zeros, of the golden world of media with global coverage, merchandising and big events ... There is also a different football, made of passion, of small amateur clubs having national relevance, of non-professional athletes offering technical magic that are rarely seen on the “real” Serie A fields.
It is the world of futsal, whose movement has seen growth in numbers and popularity to date. Cdm Futsal is an amateur 5-a-side football club, playing in the italian Serie A national championship, based in Campo Ligure with activities divided between the Ligurian hinterland town, theater of the first team's activities, and the Genoese capital, in which all are based activities related to the youth sector.
Covid emergency has caused an unpredictable crisis.
Passion is no longer enough: travel expenses, maintenance of the sport hall, compliance with anti-covid regulations are pushing costs beyond the limits. The team, whose roots lie in the social fabric of the city, with the many initiatives that involve sports training and the growth of many young guys, is in trouble. Today the activities of the football school are suspended, the public can’t access the sports halls: all this jeopardizes our very survival. We therefore need everyone's support to be able to survive in this difficult time. We have come up with a crowdfunding campaign, with growing rewards plan for everyone who wants to help us right now.
Support the away team
Travel, for a Serie A national championship, are the most burdensome item for clubs which, despite being amateur, find themselves having to bear the costs of travel, accommodation and catering, for thousands of euros per match.
Normally these costs are covered thanks to the intervention of our sponsors and the support of the many families who enroll their children in the youth sector and in the football school.
Unfortunately, Covid 19 forced us to suspend the activities of the youth teams and made it impossible, even for our sponsors, to provide us with the support they have always guaranteed.
That is why we ask for your support.
Who is CDM Futsal?
Born in the summer of 2016 from the ashes of ACD San Lorenzo della Costa, which had just won the Serie C regional championship, thanks to the union of intentions and the commitment put in place by Matteo Fortuna (current president), Michele Lombardo ( current coach of the first team) and Massimo Sorio (current manager), CDM participates in the 2016/17 Serie B championship obtaining a precious salvation and then managing to conquer the third final place in the following year, which guarantees access to the brilliantly overcome playoffs thanks to the victories over Sant'Agata Bologna and Olympia Regium in Reggio Emilia.
The victory thus guarantees the Genoese association to be able to participate in the A2 series championship, allowing it to become the first Ligurian club in history to reach this prestigious goal. The A2 2018-2019 championship ends in eighth place, which ensures the permanence in the category, but in the summer of 2019 the club is recovered in Serie A with the achievement of a new record: CDM is the first Ligurian team to achieve this high in the history of 5-a-side football in Italy.
