CANCELLATION OF VENUE
Through this letter we regret to report that the Venezuelan Football Federation has submitted an official letter stating that for insurmountable force majeure and logistics we will not be able to host the Futsal Copa Libertadores. We are obligated to reschedule said championship.
In view of this we are committed on the confirmation of a new venue with one of the associations that have made available their infrastructure and commitment to carry out the tournament so as to keep the same dates so that the teams, as they will need to start preparing for the tournament, can continue with their planned schedule.
During the afternoon or on Monday at the latest we will confirm the new venue, as well as the final date, foreseeing a difference of a week or 10 days from the original date.
