FA National Youth Futsal Festival applications open

Monday 06 Oct 2014
The FA National Futsal Youth Festival Finals take place next June
The application window for the local qualifying leagues for The FA National Youth Futsal Festival is now open.  

This year's competition format starts in November with the Local Qualifying Leagues taking place until April and then the Regional Finals run from April to June 2015.

And this year's National Finals take place on 27 and 28 June 2015.

As we have seen, youth Futsal is on the rise and this has been none more so evident than in The FA National Youth Futsal Festival in the last 18 months, with more local qualifying leagues taking place and more teams participating.

The FA National Youth Futsal Festival is designed to provide an inspirational platform for young people to take-up and play Futsal on a regular-basis. During that 18 month period, the competition has seen more schools, clubs and young people taking part with over 16,240 players and over 2474 teams vying for a place in the regional and national finals last year alone.

These are all positive signs for the long term growth of the game and with more sustainable opportunities now available to teams and players to play all year round in The FA Youth Futsal Fives and Charter Standard Leagues, it is hoped that the game will continue to flourish.

If you currently run a Futsal youth league or festival and are looking to host one then what better time or opportunity to have your league part of a National competition?

So if you wish to run a local qualifying league / festival for boys and girls then you must register with The FA by 7 November 2014. 

It is simple process to do just complete the downloadable expression of interest form. Further information on the format of the competition is contained in the guidance document (Click here to download).
