Three-time U.S. Futsal National Champion Safira FC will make its Major Futsal League (MFL) debut on Apr. 16 in Boston against regional rival NEFC. Kickoff is set for 6:00pm.

Safira, which recently won the U.S. Futsal Northeast Regional Championship, and NEFC will join Massachusetts FC and New England Futsal as the region’s representatives for the 2016 MFL season. Massachusetts and New England Futsal will open their slates on Apr. 16 in Boston as well, with kickoff for their season-opening clash scheduled for 8:00pm.

Both matches are expected to be set as part of a regional doubleheader, with the exact location to be announced at a later date.

The aforementioned sides, all of whom will compete in the MFL’s Eastern Conference, will each play a nine-game schedule that will run through Jun. 26. All matches are scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays.

MFL is comprised of 32 teams across the continent, including footprints in Canada and Mexico. The top eight clubs will advance to the playoffs, while the bottom three will be relegated to the second-tier National Premier Futsal League.

The league’s title game will coincide with the U.S. Futsal National Championship in San Jose, Calif. during the weekend of July 14 – 17.
