The Futsal club exclusively for Stotfold Juniors FC players only.

Help improve your skills and fitness with Futsal

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi to name but a few of the South American legends all played and enjoyed Futsal.  But Futsal has not just helped produce South American football stars. On the European stage Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, amongst many others, have played Futsal to develop their skills.

Futsal is a five-a-side game, played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a smaller size ball with a reduced bounce.  It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height.

The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces

DC Juniors is open to U8-U10 and U11-U12 age groups with sessions on a Monday evening at the Pendleton Sports Centre, Etonbury Academy.

“Futsal has been very important in my life. In developing my technique, quick thinking, short movements. I think Futsal is fundamental in a footballers career. It was very important in mine”
