Puma launches first ever football tournament in Southeast Asia, registration now open

Take part in Puma’s first ever football tournament in Southeast Asia.

Update: March 18, 12.19pm (Singapore time)

Puma has updated that The Puma FTBL Cup Malaysia will take place at the Sunway XPark Futsal Centre at Sunway South Quay, Jalan Tasik Selatan, Bandar Sunway, 47500, Subang Jaya Selangor, instead of Sunway University, as previously reported. No changes have been made to the competition date – the event will take place on April 20, 2019.

The first ever Puma FTBL Cup is a football tournament that puts teams through a series of futsal competitions and skill challenges.

The tournament will be held in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Participants from each country will compete amongst other participants from their country only. The tournament details are as follows:

Malaysia, April 20 – Sunway University
Singapore, April 28 – Home United Football Academy
Indonesia, April 28 – Lapangan Sepak Bola TNI AU Pancoran

The top three winning teams walk away with Puma vouchers worth US$1,200, US$800 and S$400, respectively.

One player from each country will be awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) recognition and wins a 1-year boot deal with Puma, subject to terms and conditions.

How to play

To take part in the Puma FTBL Cup, participants will need to form a team of six to eight players.

Teams will be required to compete in a two-part challenge – the 5-a-side tournament and the skills challenge. The skills challenge will put players’ technical skills to the test, with sets such as the Free Kick, Ball Juggling, Headers & Volleys, Shooting Challenges and Team Speed, where players have to get through a challenging obstacle course in the quickest time possible.

Points will be awarded for winning games, scoring goals as well as completing skill challenges. The team with the most points wins.

The 5-a-side tournament takes place in the round-robin format, where teams will be split into groups to face off against opponents.
