After celebrating a full decade of minifootball in Croatia (in reality it started in 2004. unofficially), the Croatian minifootball association added one more step in further development and conducted a voting process on social media for the best men’s player of the decade and women’s player of the year.
“We are incorporating our followers and minifootball fans into our development each year deeper into minifootball activities. This we see as the future of growing not just our players base, but also promoting minifootball as a sport and in the same time our social media platforms. For the first time we had voted in two categories, for the best men player of the decade (2011-2021.) and since our female minifootball is growing bigger each year, the female player of the year award. We had 10 players and 7 female players in the competition. In the end, viral reach was 327.132 people engaged, with 7.198 post likes, 447 post shares, 297 story shares, and in end 3.143 votes. It was a huge success and we hope next year in front of a bigger auditorium and end of the pandemic restrictions.” - as shared by Bruno Alpeza, the President of the Croatian Minifootball Association
