opening ceremony of the 4th Futsal World
Championships for the Deaf, with the Swiss
anthem performed in sign language.
300 athletes, women and men, were led into the hall by a group of drummers. The OC offers
a very warm welcome to the Futsal-players from 18 different countries, from all
over the world.
After a few speeches held by representatives of the ICSD,
SGSV-FSSS and of the city council, the flag of the ICSD was raised.
Everybody is looking forward to many interesting Futsal-matches
here in the Eulachhalle in Winterthur.
