Small-sided and Futsal

A different form of the game

Manchester CFA are a focus small-sided county for The FA. This means that we will promote all small-sided footballing provision in Greater Manchester and make sure that all leisure provision will be affiliated and safe.

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. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

More details of the small-sided opportunities in Manchester will be made available in due course.
