Futsal is a fast-paced, indoor, small-sided version of football that is widely played across the world. Many professional players including Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar attribute their fantastic skills to playing Futsal from a young age.
The AFC Bournemouth Academy recruitment team use Futsal as a key method to identify players for their Academy, as it requires very technical skills in a tight space, so highlights gifted players, regardless of their physical size and build.

Within the AFC Bournemouth Academy, Futsal makes up a key element of their training programme, with each player attending a weekly Futsal training session. We’ve introduced a Futsal element to the NF Academy programme, taking place in the fantastic indoor Sportshall at Ballard School and at Priestlands, on Wednesday evenings.
To discuss your child attending a trial for the Academy please contact the coaching team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01590 381311.
