Welcome to OzFootball's Futsalroo archive. Currently the archive contains information transcribed from online FIFA, AFC and OFC records, detailing Australia's participation in major FIFA and AFC tournaments almost completely. Detailed information from the Futsalroos' OFC era is far more elusive. This is one of the more difficult areas to compile information for, as details are thin on the ground or unsorted due to the poor cousin status of futsal in this country. Details on opponents' squads, friendlies and Oceanian qualifiers and tournaments are especially tricky. As our focus is more on the outdoor side of things, we're somewhat dependant on external contributions to make anything happen here. As with the rest of the archives, any help or contribution is greatly appreciated.
This section does not yet include the pre-FIFA futsal/indoor soccer sanctioned era, and there are no immediate plans for the compilation of that data. In 2013, I split the match results into 'A' and 'B' internationals, and will hopefully gradually add more 'B' International results. For the most part, when a full squad list for a game is available, it should be assumed that the first five players listed were the starting players for that game. However, it should not be assumed that every player listed for a particular match got game time, especially in the case of goalkeepers.
Principle sources used so far for this section include: FIFA's online database for major FIFA tournaments; the AFC's online database for major AFC tournaments; the OFC website; FFA press releases where they are available; the Canberra Times; the Futsal Planet and Fustal4All websites, which have provided information on a myriad of friendlies which would have otherwise remained forgotten or unknown. Thanks to former Futsalroo Elliot Zwangobani for his help, and also to PoHui Ko of the Bolosepako blog for help with the 2001 Tiger 5s venue information.
