Cardinal Newman and Durrington High School girls’ football teams will be representing Sussex in the FA Youth Futsal Cup 2018-19 on Wednesday 20 March.
Now in its seventh year, the competition was set up to promote Futsal, offer an opportunity to try Futsal in a competitive environment and also to provide a route into The FA Youth National Futsal Cup.
These aims have not changed and as the seasons go by it is been great to see more and more teams be involved in this competition.
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.
