FTI was formed in winter 2010 when a group of college friends fell in love with the game of Futnet. They soon developed their skills and learned from their mentor Juraj Holkovic ( Slovakia) who taught them the basic rules and regulations. Since then they have travelled to London, Trnava (Slovakia), Istanbul and Northern Cyprus to compete in competitions and have represented their country well.

They have also worked hard to spread the game of Futnet across the country by giving demonstrations on National Media including national Television, Radio and Newspaper coverage. Last year they had their first international success by winning the first ever Tri-Nations trophy by defeating England and Wales in London.

FTI hope to have relative success at this years World Cup. They understand they are probably the newest organisation to play in the competition and want to represent their country well and give their best and hopefully gain respect from this experience.
