The Kinder + Sport Futsal Cup is an exciting national schools competition for Under 16’s.
Local competitions are organised across the country by EFL Clubs throughout England and Wales involving thousands of Year 10 and 11 students battling it out to represent their local club in the regional finals.
The regional finals take place at eight venues with the winners of the boys and girls tournament qualifying for the grand finals day in April.
Futsal, the world’s fastest growing indoor sport, showcases close ball skills, increased touches, quick decision making, creativity and tactical nous. Some of the world’s leading football stars, such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, honed their ball skills with futsal. The free flowing game has witnessed significant growth throughout England and Wales over recent years, as a sport in its own right, and as a fundamental part of football development.
The aim of Ferrero’s global Kinder + Sport project is to increase levels of physical activity among young generations around the world. The Kinder + Sport Futsal Cup builds on the success of last year’s Kinder + Sport Kids Cup for under 11s and Kinder + Sport Girls Cup for under 13s, also delivered by Ferrero and the EFL Trust.
