Regional Futsal Talent ID Centre Hosting Trial Day

prev next

This season The FA Futsal Regional Talent ID Centres have replaced the former Centre of Futsal Excellence. The RTC’s are there to spot potential and emerging talent to be selected onto the Futsal Elite Performance Pathway and along with our Scouting network, provide an opportunity for players to be selected for the U17 England Team, the England Development Squad and ultimately the England Seniors.

The UEFA Futsal U19 competition is due to start in 2019 and with that in mind, our immediate target for this season is ensure that the best male players born in 2000, 2001 & 2002 are in the Elite Performance Programme.
Players will be invited to attend an RTC from both Futsal and Football environments and for anyone not currently involved in a Futsal Club, they will be provided with information of training sessions in their region.

Details of your local RTC Testing and Observation Day is shown on the poster below. Please feel free to share this with any of your players or fellow coaches to promote this opportunity to as wide an audience as possible in your local area. There will be other dates for different areas of the North Region over the season.

Your local RTC Date is Saturday 9th December at York University.

If you have any players born in 2000, 2001 & 2002 and would like to recommend them to the Regional Talent Centre for testing and observations please complete the Initial Player Recommendation Entry Questionnaire found below and send it to including the players' contact details.  Please note that this does not guarantee the recommended player an immediate place at one of our Talent Centres.

The deadline for player recommendations is Friday 1st December. Once all nominations have been received and collated those we wish to attend will be invited with further details for the day including specific timings.
