Podcast- a chat with a Sports Therapist About Sport & Belfast Futsal
A chat with a Sports Therapist: Sport matters to us all whether we are spectators or players and it is fair to say that the last two years have brought chaos into the world of sport but hopefully we are coming out the other end.
My podcast this week is with Aidan Raftery a Sports injury therapist who is an online friend for a number of years and the podcast arose out of Aidan’s recent appointment as sports physio for Sparta Belfast Futsal Club who will be competing in a UEFA tournament later this month in Estonia from the 20th to the 25th August 2021.
Sparta Belfast has qualified for the Futsal EUFA Champions League preliminary round in this tournament being held in Estonia.
Aidan is no stranger to the sport of football futsal because he previously filled a similar role in Kiev in 2019 for the Irish diabetic futsal team.
Many of you may have limited knowledge about futsal but to generalize it is a high-intensity indoor football sport that is recognised for being great for ball control and skills and is exciting to watch because it is an attacking form of football that is non stop end-to-end stuff.
Listen to the podcast to learn what Aidan brings to the table for clubs and players alike!
It’s a great achievement for a club like Sparta Belfast to have qualified for a tournament like this so support the club on Facebook.
