This exciting format goes from strength to strength in Hertfordshire as more clubs include it in their offering, so we're expecting a record level of interest in our 2019 Youth Futsal Cup
Now in its seventh year, the competition was set up to promote Futsal, offer an opportunity to try Futsal in a competitive environment and also to provide a route into The FA Youth National Futsal Cup. These aims have not changed and as the seasons go by it is been great to see more and more teams be involved in this competition.
For those not familiar with the format, Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a ball with a reduced bounce. Futsal by its nature places a large emphasis on technical ability in situations of high pressure, and proves an excellent tool for players to develop their technique.
How does it work?
