SMGFL Futsal

We take a look at the recent South Manchester Girls Football League Futsal festival!
Saturday 16th January saw 15 teams from the under 8s to under 10s age groups participate in a Futsal festival organised by ourselves and the SMGFL.

Futsal is currently the fastest growing indoor format of small-sided football in England and offers players the opportunity to develop their individual skills.

These teams regularly participate in the South Manchester Girls League and saw the Futsal festival as an excellent opportunity to explore a different format of football.

The provision offers the girls a winter break from their outdoor fixtures, which will have fallen victim to the harsh weather.

A second round of Futsal fixtures for the under 8s to under 10s age groups will be hosted on Saturday 30th January at the Trafford Powerleague Sportdome.

As well as the Futsal fixtures, the South Manchester Girls League also run an indoor 6-aside competition for the under 11s age group, which will be continued throughout January and into early February.

For more information on how to enter a team into the Futsal festival, please contact Katherine Jones at katherine.jones@manchesterfa.com or call 0161 225 1966.
