National Futsal Series Kicks Off in Sussex
The FA National Futsal Series (NFS) will kick-off its first season on Sunday 29 September, and Sussex Futsal are hosting the first ever National Futsal Series event.
This signifies the start of an exciting new chapter for Futsal in Sussex, and across the whole country, following the launch of our first-ever Futsal strategy in September 2018.
The NFS will operate at tiers one and two of the Futsal competition pathway and comprises of 25 teams playing across three divisions; a national tier 1, underpinned by two regional tier 2 competitions.
The league will be played as a central venue model with all teams hosting two fixture rounds, giving them the opportunity to welcome teams and spectators from all over their region.
Sussex Futsal Club finished 3rd in the previous National Futsal League Premier Division in the 2018/19 season and will be looking to build on their great campaign within the new National Futsal Series structure.
Club Chairman Graham Knight has spoken about Sunday’s event and the season. “We are looking forwards to the challenge of the FA National Futsal Series, which is an exciting time for the sport.
“To be chosen as one of the host clubs for the launch is an honour and a challenge, but something that Sussex Futsal Club are looking to tackle head on. It would be great to attract a big crowd and engage in the Futsal Community in Brighton and West Sussex, seeing as we have successfully done this in the past within East Sussex, particularly Hastings and Eastbourne.”
