AoC Sport launches new National Futsal League
AoC Sport has opened up entries for the launch of a new National Futsal League for 2019/20.
The new league will add an additional level of competition to complement AoC Sport’s current regional futsal offering.
The National Futsal League will run throughout the academic season, and will provide an opportunity for further education institutions and providers who are invested in the development of futsal to test themselves against the best teams in the country.
The format of the league will be confirmed in June, once entries have been submitted.
Whilst the regional leagues will continue to run in the same vein as the 2018/19 season (in the latter 2 months of the season and in a festival format), the National Futsal League will run throughout the academic year in a home and away format.
Please note exact format of the league will be dependent on number and geographical location of entries, but a home and away format is preferred if viable.
Entries are now open, please click here to enter via Naqoda.
If you have not entered a team in an AoC Sport league before, please contact email@example.com and request the creation of a Naqoda login.
For its first year, AoC Sport is offering the following entry prices:
Colleges who are eligible may wish to consider applying for the ECFA Growth Fund to help with the costs associated with running a new team.
Selection of teams for the National Futsal League will be based on assessment against the minimum operating standards, as well as the viability of leagues.
Please note if the formation of the National League(s) are not viable, then an entry may not be accepted.
AoC Sport will endeavour to accommodate as many entries as possible and will signpost teams to AoC Sport regional futsal leagues if required.
If you have any queries please contact Alice Kempski, National Football Development Officer.
