This morning I have been told that I have been appointed as a Chief Editor of a Special Issue: A review about Futsal that will be published in the American Journal of Sports Science and Medicine. As a Chief Editor, I have named two Guest Editors to help me with all the duties that a Special Issue requires. The two Guest Editors will be Dr Amador J. Lara-Sánchez (University of Jaén – Spain) and Dr Antonio Tessitore (University of Rome “Foro Itálico” – Italy).

A complete Special Issue about Futsal in a scientific journal is another step forward to try to develop this fantastic sport which, I hope, becomes Olympic very soon.
