We have the pleasure to announce a new member: FIFS – Federation International Football Skating!!
FIFS is the world governing body for the Football Staking!
The sport was created in the Midlands district of the United Kingdom in 1882 and the first documented match was a game between local rivals Derby and Burton on 30 January of that year. Video footage first appeared at Forest Gate Roller Rink in 1934 in London, United Kingdom, where two teams of female players were filmed for an item on Pathe News. Over a decade later Billboard reported in 1949 that it had been revived in Detroit, having disappeared for more than thirty years. The game re-emerged for inlines in San Francisco in 1995, when a group of friends on inline skates began playing soccer with a pine cone. They soon switched to using a football.
As if playing football on concrete, trying to kick one of those vintage heavy leather balls in between two jumpers (makeshift posts) wasn’t hard enough, these kids were doing so on roller skates!
The above picture was taken in 1931 in East London, the area in which Millwall and West Ham United played (the former have since relocated to south-east London).
London has remained a hub of the sport that has become known as Rollersoccer. Indeed, in 2003, the English capital hosted the maiden Rollersoccer World Cup, with the Netherlands beating old rivals Germany in the final.
Futins Sport born on 1996 in Brazil, South America by Mr. Almir Falcao when on a Sunday afternoon he heard the sound of the ball hitting the wall of his house, his children Caio who was 7 years old at that time and Juliana who was 10 were shooting and playing with the ball with their skates, he saw that and he thought that he can adapt the idea in a futsal court.
