Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA. Find out how YOU can get involved in Futsal in Hampshire.

Futsal is the only FIFA recognised 5-aside and is played widely across the world. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development. "Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing… also for dribbling, balance, concentration… Futsal was very, very important, no doubt.”  (Pele, World Cup Winner: 1958, 1962 & 1970)

At Hampshire FA, we offer a number of ways to get involved, from trying it out for the first time right up to clubs playing in the National Futsal League.

Recreational sessions are the perfect opportunity to try out futsal without the commitment of joining a club and playing every week. Sessions typically run during the week with a 'Turn Up & Play' policy allowing flexibility in your participation. A small fee is usually required to cover costs of facility hire. Use the map above to find a recreational session near you.

Hampshire FA operates two leagues within the county catering for both male and female teams.

The Hampshire County Futsal League is entering its third season of operation, and has been building steadily year on year. The winners of this league, feed directly into the National FA Futsal Cup. Fixtures are held on Friday evenings at the superb facilities at Sparsholt College in Winchester, with fixtures taking place once or twice per month - again offering players a bit of flexibility to fit around busy lifestyles. For more information or to enquire about entering a team into the Hampshire County League, please email Jake - Jake.Ashton@HampshireFA.com

The Solent Futsal League offers both student and community teams an opportunity to play competitive fixtures in Southampton on Sunday afternoon/evenings. For more information or to enquire about entering a team into the Solent League, please email Flo - Flo.Lunn@HampshireFA.com

We are lucky enough to have two teams from Hampshire playing in the National Futsal League; Basingstoke Futsal Club and Saints Foundation Futsal.

The FA National Futsal Leagues represent the elite adult Futsal leagues in England and have been co-ordinated and run by The FA since 2008. The top male Futsal clubs in the country compete in the challenging and exciting FA National Futsal Leagues which now showcase the best Futsal talent from across the country.

With the growth in futsal leagues and competitive opportunities, the demand for qualified referees increases. We have recently qualified nine new futsal referees to support the game across the county. If you are interested in becoming an FA qualified futsal referee please contact Flo Lunn for more information - Flo.Lunn@HampshireFA.com

Each year Hampshire FA hosts a local qualifier to nominate teams to attend regional qualifiers for the National Youth Futsal Festivals. In the 2016/17 these were held regionally in the north and south of the county, followed by a finals day to determine winners in the u10, u12, u14 and u16 categories for both male and female teams.

For more information on the Youth Futsal Festivals, please contact Jake - Jake.Ashton@HampshireFA.com.
