Free Futsal community sessions are taking place every Monday from 5-6pm at Palatine Leisure Centre and from 28 January every Tuesday from 5-6pm at Unity Academy for 15-18 year olds.
Futsal is the only form of indoor football approved by FIFA, UEFA and the FA. With over two million players regularly participating in fast-paced 5-aside action, that rewards good technique and game intelligence, Futsal is globally recognised as one of the fastest growing indoor sports in the world.
Many greats from the 11-a-side game such as Ronaldo, Fabregas, Zidane and Pelé attribute the development of their skills to Futsal. Extensively televised international competitions such as the Futsal world cup and UEFA Futsal cup allow players to showcase their talents on a global scale and ensure that Futsal is here to stay as part of the fabric of football. As a key element of the FA’s strategy to develop the game and produce players capable of representing England and after a very successful introduction in 2010, Blackpool FC Community Trust are now providing this exciting and innovative programme.
