The agreement ratifies Cementos Argos with domestic marketing rights for the FIFA Futsal World Colombia 2016. The support of this important event strengthens Cementos Argos’ commitment to sports and particularly to futsal, in which it has already been involved for several years as the only sponsor of Liga Argos Futsal.
This is the eighth version of the FIFA Futsal World Cup where Bucaramanga, Cali and Medellin will be the three venues that host the main event form 10 September 10 to 1 October.
"The international vision and commitment to futsal motivated us to participate decisively in the maximum sporting event taking place in Colombia this year, the FIFA Futsal World Colombia 2016. We are pleased to have a presence there and we are proud to have the tournament at home", remarked Cementos Argos Regional Vice President of Colombia Thomas Restrepo Pérez.
The match schedule of the Futsal World Cup will be fully complete on Thursday 19 May at the Official Draw in Medellin, where qualified national teams will know their road to the final of this prestigious championship, which brings together the 24 best teams on the planet.
