FA Youth Futsal Cup
The East Riding County FA is pleased to announce that we will be holding two qualifying tournaments for the FA Youth Futsal Cup.
Now in its seventh year the FA Youth Fustal Cup has made great strides in raising the profile of Futsal in this country whilst giving thousands of young people the opportunity to play this fast paced skill centred game in a competitive environment.
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 places a large emphasis on technical ability in situations of high pressure, and proves an excellent tool for players to develop their technique.
The East Riding FA will be running two tournaments at the following aged groups:
- U12 Boys
- U14 Boys
Both tournaments will take place at the Steve Prescott Sports Centre on Saturday 23rd February with the U12 tournament kicking off at 9am and the U14 tournament starting at 1pm.
The winners of each age group will then be invited to participate in the regional stage of the competition before hopefully making the nationals.
The FA National Youth Futsal Cup Regional Finals - (Regional)
Will take place during March 2019, with venue and dates to be confirmed. There will be 8 regional finals and all County FA winners will be allocated to a regional final.
The FA National Youth Futsal Cup Semi Finals - (National)
Will take place on the 13th and 14th April, a winner from each regional final will progress to this competition in each age group and gender.
The FA National Youth Futsal Cup Finals - (National)
Will take place from the 2nd to 6th May 2019 at St Georges Park. Two teams from each gender and age group will qualify for this national final event and play a game to be crowned national champions.
The cost of participating in the tournament is £30 and must be paid to ERCFA prior to participation in the tournament. .
