Another weekend of Futsal action came to a close as the 2013 FA National Youth Futsal Festival was played out at the National Futsal Centre in Birmingham.
It was a weekend of thrills, spills and fabulous Futsal action, showcasing the best young teams from around the country and potentially, some of the nation’s future stars in the process.
The competition took place over two days. The finals day for the younger age groups (Under 10’s and Under 12’s, Boys and Girls) took place on Saturday, before the older age groups hit the courts on Sunday (Under 14’s and Under 16’s, Boys and Girls).
The standard of competition was high, with 24 County FA heats, attracting an average of 46 teams per FA.
In total 1,036 boys’ and 699 girls’ teams competed in initial qualifying events, before progressing through to one of eight regional finals, giving the children the opportunity to taste finals day Futsal experience.
