Sampdoria Futsal launched with CDM

President Massimo Ferrero and U.C. Sampdoria are proud to announce the launch of Sampdoria Futsal, expanding the existing partnership with Genoa-based 5-a-side team CDM Futsal, who play in Italy’s second-tier Serie A2 futsal championship.

As a result of this agreement, CDM Futsal’s senior team and Under-19s will – besides changing their name – wear the U.C. Sampdoria logo and kit, meaning the Blucerchiati colours will be on display during their home games at the sports arena in Campo Ligure.

Samp and CDM will also work more closely together in running football schools, with CDM becoming the Sampdoria Next Generation Elite Technical Centre to provide football training and promote the sporting values that have always distinguished Sampdoria.

Sampdoria and CDM thus hope to take Liguria futsal back to the highest level while helping to develop futsal both regionally and further afield.

“I’m delighted to see Sampdoria branch out into futsal,” said president Massimo Ferrero. “Once again we are thinking ahead of the rest for the good of the club, as we did previously with eSports. We’ll now be able to see the Sampdoria colours in futsal – a rapidly growing sector, especially among youngsters. In offering families and their children another opportunity to do sport as part of the Next Generation family, we are further underlining our commitment to Genoa and Liguria. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to get this project off the ground. Forza Sampdoria Futsal!”
