@Futsal Group is the UK’s leading operator of Futsal, with a vision to establish Futsal at the centre of football communities. Backed by a multi-million pound investment, @Futsal Group provides state of the art arenas, licensed Futsal clubs and modern education programmes on a national scale.
Our operations specialise in playing the indoor football format called Futsal, which is the only form of indoor football approved by FIFA, UEFA and The FA. The game is reported to be the fastest growing indoor sport on the planet and is fuelled by worldwide growth. @Futsal Group work very closely with all leading football authorities and leagues in the development of Futsal and associated education programmes.
Futsal, its more than just the game . . .
Football has a unique power to cross all boundaries and unite people from the most diverse and divergent groups. @Futsal we create opportunities to harness this power through what we call the “Futsal Experience” and to channel this through communities using our unique playing and education programmes.
In case you didn’t know about the game itself, Futsal is an exciting, skilful, fast paced version of 5 aside, suitable for kids and adults. Recognised by FIFA, UEFA and The FA as the international version of the small sided game with national leagues here in the UK, professional leagues overseas in places like Spain and Brazil, with familiar names such as Barcelona.
There are also major worldwide events such as the FIFA Futsal World Cup and UEFA European Futsal championships. It is considered an important factor in why Brazil, many other south American countries and nations like
Spain and Portugal are so technically proficient, as it’s such a popular game in those countries and is credited by many stars down the years from Pele to Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Robinho, Fabregas and of course Lionel Messi. Because of the very nature of the game and the ball, it helps develop technique, skill and speed of decision making in players. It is an excellent development tool for the 11 aside version of the game we all know and love, plus it’s great fun for players of all abilities and ages.
