Welcome to the official site of the Nancy Fesi Charity Futsal Tournament. We are glad that you're interested in joining us for this great event.
The tournament is named after the grandmother of Carson McBain, an Emmaus student who started this event last year. Nancy died of lung cancer when Carson was young, and he has always wanted to do something in her honor. Combining his love for his grandmother with his favorite sport, Carson hosted what would be the first annual Nancy Fesi Charity Futsal Tournament on April 8th, 2017.
The 2nd annual version of this event will build on last year's successful tournament, which saw F.C. Cash Me Ousside take home the trophy in an overtime thriller as the tournament raised over $1000. This year's event will feature a new division for youth ages 13-17.
The beneficiary of this year's tournament will be Free to Breathe, a non-profit that sponsors lung cancer research and assists those who are living with this deadly disease. At the end of the tournament, a donation will be made to Free to Breathe in Nancy Fesi's name, totaling all funds raised less expenses.
