Premier League goalkeepers such as Ederson, Alisson and De Gea have been brought up on futsal and it’s easy to see how it has influenced their game, whether that be with how they deal with the ball in possession or with the techniques they often use to make saves close to the goal.
The benefits of futsal for football goalkeepers is clear. As a game in its own right, futsal goalkeepers enjoy the fact that they’re always in the action and in a 40-minute game it’s not uncommon to face over 60 shots on target with a similar number of opportunities to distribute the ball.
We now have a fantastic opportunity for aspiring goalkeepers to join a new training programme commencing in January 2021 led by last seasons National Futsal League golden glove winner and fans player of the year Phil Codd. Phil is one of the countries most experienced Futsal goalkeepers and has wealth of knowledge having played Super League Futsal for many years with Middlesbrough and York.
