June 7th - 8th, 2008

On June 7th & 8th , 2007, the Erdre Futsal Club is organizing an INTERNATIONAL FUTSAL TOURNAMENT who is already considered since its first edition as the Futsal Tournament “reference” in France. This invitational tournament will gather 32 teams:
- 16 non-domestic teams
- 6 teams from Pays de la Loire
- 10 teams from the other regions of France

– according to a geographical distribution pre-established by the hosts.

Most importantly, the organizers will invite the teams whose records and fame can contribute to the prestige of the tournament. The competitions will take place in the area of Nantes, on two sites (La Chapelle sur Erdre and St Joseph de Porterie) offering 3 gymnasiums, i.e. a total of 6 venues all equipped with 100 to 1500 seat grandstands. The meets will be judged under the Regulations of the FIFA by a group of 12 accredited officials – some at an International (F.I.F.A) level.
Most of all, this tournament is a tribute in memory of Christophe Brisset – a model player of the Erdre Futsal Club Atlantic who died at the age of 32 on July 10th, 2006. His “buddies” were willing to pay him this tribute to keep his memory alive by naming the event:

In the first phase, the 32 teams will be split into 8 groups of 4 teams; the 2 first teams of each group will advance to the main tournament and the others will play a consolation tournament.
The second phase will also proceed with groups of 4 teams, with the 2 lead teams of each group advancing to the quarter-final round of the main tournament in a single elimination format.
In the consolation tournament, only the first team of each group of 4 will participate in the semi-final. This competition format ensures every team plays a minimum of 6 matches, 4 on the Saturday afternoon and 2 on the Sunday morning. Only the teams qualified after the second phase will be able to play up to 3 additional matches on the Sunday afternoon, i.e. the finalists of the main tournament. The games will last 15 minutes, except for the finals of the main and consolation tournaments finals which will be played in 2 periods of 10 minutes.
Any match ending on a tied score will be followed by kicks at goal a shoot-out based on the sudden death principle of “sudden death” from the first shooter.
During the round robin matches, a win will earn 4 points, a win by shoot-out 2 points, a defeat by shoot-out 1 point, and a defeat 0 point.
The complete regulations of competition will be communicated to the teams at the general briefing on June 7th 2008 at 11 AM.

Highly determined to provide an unequalled level of performance in France, the Organizing Committee of the "Christophe Brisset EIFT 2008" has set up an exceptional logistics plan, with an ongoing objective to minimize the distances between the different strategic sites (accommodations, restaurants, gymnasiums, etc.). The overall plan is thus concentrated within a radius of 3 kilometers around the accommodation place of the teams. The competitions will take place on two sites, each of them offering 3 gymnasiums with grandstands (from 100 to 1500 seats), located in La Chapelle sur Erdre (Mazaire) and Nantes/St Joseph de Porterie.

All the delegations will be accommodated on one single site: the beautiful 3* WESTOTEL hotel complex specifically equipped with a swimming pool, saunas, a fitness center, an auditorium and offering a free high speed Internet access in every room as well as a jack socket on televisions.

The WESTOTEL offers the advantage of being equidistant from the Mazaire (La Chapelle sur Erdre) sport complex and the gymnasiums in St Joseph de Porterie, that is less than 5 minutes by car.

On the Saturday and Sunday, the delegations and organizers will be provided lunches (first course, main course, desert) at the Géant Casino cafeteria of La Chapelle sur Erdre . A minibus shuttle service will transport the teams having no vehicle.

Finally, a diverse animation program as well as the attendance of several VIPs will bring a festive, prestigious and friendly character to the event.
