NSU Futsal Tournament



NSU FutsalIn an effort to bring more exposure to Aberdeen and the University, NSU Soccer continues to expand their annual indoor soccer tournament. In previous years, the group has turned teams away due to lack of facilities, space, and time. They have now added another venue, and they were able to increase the number of teams participating in the tournament. This year there were 96 participating teams, of which 83 teams were not from Aberdeen.

NSU Soccer hosted two tournaments this winter. The NSU Futsal Tournament, which is in its 4th years, and the NSU Youth Futsal Tournament which is in its 15th year.
