Stevenage FC in the Community has its last few remaining spaces available on the brand new Futsal and Education Scheme. 

The scheme, which is for boys aged 16 and 17 years old, starts in September and will see players study for a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Equivalent to three A-Levels), whilst training and playing in the newly established Football League Futsal League. 

Futsal is the only form of indoor football approved by FIFA, UEFA and the FA. With over 2 million players regularly participating in fast-paced 5-a-side action that rewards good technique and game intelligence, Futsal is globally recognised as one of the fastest growing indoor sports in the world. 

Many greats from the 11-a-side game such as Ronaldo, Fabregas, Zidane and Pele attribute the development of their skills to Futsal. Extensively televised international competitions such as the Futsal world cup and UEFA Futsal cup allow players to showcase their talents on a global scale and ensure that Futsal is here to stay as part of the fabric of football.  

As a key element of the FA’s strategy to develop the game and produce players capable of representing England, and after a very successful introduction in 2010, Stevenage FC in conjunction with the Football League Trust are now offering this exciting and innovative programme to 16-19 year olds. Learners will have the opportunity to train in Futsal for up to 8 hours a week with Stevenage F.C. coaches, under the direction of the Football League Trust.  Training will be supplemented with fortnightly regular fixtures against other teams, representing professional clubs, in the Football League Trust Futsal League.  Visit for all the latest league news!  

A trial and information day will be taking place on Friday 24th August, for further information or to register your interest please call 01438 222222 or email
