New Futsal League starting in Carlisle

October 19, 2012

The newly formed Carlisle League is currently recruiting teams to the FIRST EVER male adult Futsal in the County which is due to start next month.

Cumberland FA has been working with the organisers to support the first Futsal League in the County as part of the small sided football provision.

The 5 a-side indoor format is the only recognised format supported by UEFA and FIFA with World and European Championships for National and Club teams.

Girls have been playing the format for a couple of years in Cumberland along with Under 8's as part of the development programme of increasing skills and retaining playing opportunities through the winter; and now it is the turn of the open aged men (16+) to have a go!
