Girls Futsal Festival

Girls' Futsal Festivals

Take part, have fun and make friends.

Manchester FA are launching monthly Girls' Futsal Festivals taking place during the second half of each month on Sundays, to avoid most local girls football league programmes. The festivals will take place from July to December. With the launch of The FAs Futsal Strategy (2018-24), we are committed to growing the game locally and providing the opportunity for every young footballer to experience playing futsal as part of their development. 

We will be hosting a festival format of fixtures for U8, U10, U12 and U14 girls at Platt Lane on a monthly basis, and these festivals will be standalone events so teams can attend which festivals they are able to alongside their existing football commitments. Full details of the festivals can be found below:


Dates: Sunday 28th July 2019

Venue: Platt Lane Complex, M14 7UU

Age Groups: U8-U14 Girls

Times: 9am - 12pm (exact times per age group to be confirmed)

Cost: £15 per team, per festival

The following festival dates after June will be as follows:

- Sunday 25th August

- Sunday 22nd September

- Sunday 27th October

- Sunday 24th November

What next?

We intend for these festivals to provide an opportunity for teams within your clubs to participate within regular futsal provision to develop the variety on offer to them and their experience within grassroots. Places  and entries will be limited, so please confirm your entries as soon as possible. Participating teams must be coached by an FA Qualified Coach with in-date DBS, Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children qualifications. For further information, please contact Alex West:
