Countdown to the FA National Futsal Leagues Grand Finals 2010 at Surrey Sports Park
07 July 2010
The climax of The Football Associations domestic Futsal season will see the six leading Futsal clubs in England go head-to-head over an intense and exciting weekend of Futsal at the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford on the 10th and 11th July 2010. The brand new multi-million pound sporting facilities at the University of Surrey will be an exquisite back-drop to this season’s FA National Futsal League Grand Finals, which will see one team being crowned English National Futsal Champions for 2010.
The Grand Finals are the culmination of a long hard season that started in January for the 23 clubs in the FA National Futsal Leagues. These Leagues are split into three divisions – the Northern, Midlands and Southern Leagues. The top two teams from these three leagues at the end of the season progress to the Grand Finals for a battle royale to determine who has the right to declare themselves FA National Champions. The winning club not only gets the bragging rights but also receives an attractive amount of prize money along with the opportunity to represent England in the UEFA Futsal Cup – the Champions League of Futsal!
The FA National Futsal League Grand Finals will see six thrilling play-off matches take place on the Saturday 10th July, starting from 10am and not finishing until 8:30pm. The Grand Final will take place at 12pm on Sunday 11th July, with an exhibition match occurring beforehand at 11am showcasing some of the top youth Futsal in the country. Come along and get a flavour of what Futsal is all about – entrance for spectators is free.
