Following Carlisle Futsal Clubs successful application to the grow the game fund, finance has been secured to launch what is the last piece in the Clubs academy structure, Carlisle Futsal Club U19’s squad.

This squad links directly to our Senior Men’s Team who compete across England in the FA Futsal Super League.

The FA National Futsal League is the highest domestic level of Futsal played in England and the winners of the National League go onto represent England in the UEFA cup every year. It boasts the very best Futsal talent in the country with many international players and players with European experience.  Baku Utd, last years representatives were beaten by non other than Barcelona in the final rounds of the UEFA Futsal Cup.

Around the globe Futsal is a full time professional sport and there is real earning potential, pro clubs attract crowds of up to 10,000 at home games and attract major sponsorship. It’s a massive sport around the world where it has been established for over 50 years. In England we have only just embarked on our Futsal journey and in the next 5-10 years you can expect it to develop into a professional sport here like it is in other countries with televised games and it becoming a major participation and spectator sport. Baku Utd are currently a full time professional Club so the journey has already began.

As a Club Carlisle Futsal Club were formed in 2012 with the aim of gaining a place in the FA National Futsal League within 3 years we achieved this with aplomb and in fact now have a place in the Super League, well ahead of our original schedule.FA_Futsal_Logo_U19

We have lots of backing locally from the Council, Cumberland FA, business and Football Clubs. We are already recognised by the FA as having one of the most advanced club structures in the country and are only one of handful of FA Charter Standard Futsal Clubs. We boast a full academy programme up to u16s but we now need to make sure the quality of our results on the Futsal court reflects the quality of our club structure and that’s where we need you – the stars of the future.

We are committed to giving youth players an opportunity to learn, play and progress their futsal development.

Opportunities that we provide include:

  • Weekly training sessions likely to take place on a Monday between 7-8pm
  • Weekly fixtures in the Carlisle Futsal League
  • Competing in the FA U19s National Championships
  • Friendlies and Tournaments with FA National Futsal League Clubs
  • Pathway to the FA Regional Futsal Centre of Excellence Programme
  • Progression to England Senior squad

Many of our current players manage their Football commitments with their Futsal so there is no need to be concerned about that. In fact Futsal is a great way to develop your 11-a-side game, just ask Messi, Ronaldo, Iniesta, Neymar what it did for them.
