UPCOMING FUTSAL COMPETITIONS IN WEST RIDING
West Riding will be holding its FA Futsal Cup Local Qualifiers this November/December and teams interested in playing in the competition are invited to express their interest. Local Qualifiers are the first round of the national competition, and winners will progress to the Regional Finals and potentially onto the National Finals held at St George's Park in May.
This year, we are holding an Adult competition (FA Futsal Cup) and U14 and U12 competitions (FA Pokémon Youth Futsal Cup). There will be competitions for both Male and Female teams.
Provisional dates for the competitions are as below:
- Open Age (Male and Female) – Sat 7th December at Leeds Beckett (1pm-5pm) or Thursday 28th November at Huddersfield University (6pm-9.30pm). Teams can select their preferred venue.
- U12 and U14 (Male and Female) – Sat 21st December at Huddersfield University (U12 morning; U14 afternoon).
- U8 and U10 - It is hoped that additional Junior Futsal Leagues (aimed at the U8 and U10 age groups) will be formed across the County over the Winter after a number of organisations successfully applied to The FA’s Futsal Fund to start new Futsal League’s. Further details of these will be released soon.
Teams that wish to enter any of the above competitions must be affiliated, however If you wish to enter a team that is not currently affiliated please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss options to get your team affiliated. Once expressions of interest have been submitted then we will circulate full details of the entry process, costs to enter, tournament rules and format etc.
Please also note that West Riding County FA are also supporting Yr5/6 Schools Futsal Competition being ran by FC Halifax Town. The Adam Heslop Cup is being played over the coming weeks and has attracted over 40 school teams. The winners from both the Boys and Girls category will be put forward to the next round of The FA Pokémon Schools Futsal Cup.
