Giving young players the chance to get involved in this energy-packed game, compete against other teams and go all the way to the national finals
Now in its ninth year, the Hertfordshire FA Youth Futsal Cup was set up to promote Futsal, offer an opportunity to try Futsal in a competitive environment and to provide a route into The Pokémon Futsal Youth Cup, a national competition organised by England Football.
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. As more clubs include Futsal in their offering, we're expecting a record level of interest this year.
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 is a fast, frenetic and fun way to improve technique and control – and master the ball.
How does it work?
The Hertfordshire FA Youth Futsal Cup is open to all boys and girls aged 7 to 18 years and it costs just £45 per team to enter.
