The Futsalroos will return to action in April, with Football Australia confirming that it will send a national team squad to Bangkok, Thailand to compete at the 17th AFF Futsal Championship.

Australia have been drawn in Group B of the competition, which will be played at the Huamark Indoor Stadium in Thailand’s capital between April 3 and 12.
