Throughout the history, we have seen the ascent and fall of numerous magnificent and viable playing styles. Futsal, more than any other sport, transcends the confines and hindrances that culture has placed on it and transformed into a fine art. The Pesta Sukan Asrama (PSAS) 2016 organised by the Students' College Committee (SCC) was held in the MMU Melaka Futsal Court on the 17th of December 2016. The event started off with the national anthem, officiated by the Head Football Referee for PSAS and the enlistment of teams along with the briefing of rules and regulations to all participating teams.
