What is the FA Futsal Cup?
It sounds obvious, but The FA Futsal Cup is the 'FA Cup' of Futsal. It is the flagship cup competition for Futsal in England, providing opportunities for local Futsal teams to progress through the competition to the national finals to take on the leading clubs from The FA National Futsal Leagues.
The FA Futsal Cup is run for both Men and Women’s teams, from local qualifying leagues, through to regional finals and then on to the national final – offering a competition structure to rival that of the actual FA Cup!The FA Futsal Cup Structure
The FA initially advertises for Local Qualifying Leagues across the country. Each Local League should look to recruit a minimum of six teams. For 2011, these Local Leagues need to have been completed by the 9 May at the very latest. The winners of each Local Qualifying Leagues progress on to the Regional Finals in May and June 2011, at which point they are joined by clubs from The FA National Futsal Leagues (the top English Futsal leagues).
The winners of each Regional Final progress on to the National Finals in July 2011.What is a Local Qualifying League?
A Local Qualifying League may already be a Futsal League that is running in a local area that wishes to put forward the winning team into The FA Futsal Cup. More commonly, the Local Qualifying Leagues are set up with the sole purpose of supporting The FA Futsal Cup. Either is fine, but the leagues need to run over a period of time with teams competing against each other for the right to progress to the Regional Finals.
The Local Qualifying Leagues must have a minimum of six teams competing, and must play in accordance with the Futsal Laws of the Game.
The FA is looking for organisers of these local leagues to come forward to run both male and female leagues for this season’s FA Futsal Cup. These leagues need to be completed by 9 May 2011.
