Stoke-on-Trent college receives free Futsal equipment from the FA


Stoke-on-Trent College have received a free Futsal starter pack from the Football Foundation, which is funded by the FA.

The college received goalposts, balls, bibs and a coach education fund.

The starter packs are made to change existing sports halls, playgrounds and other hard surface facilities to make them Futsal-ready.

The packs came courtesy of a £300,000 Football Foundation scheme.

Michael Skubala, England Futsal Head Coach, said: “A big well done to Stoke-on-Trent College for securing a Futsal starter pack – they have a bright future ahead of them now!”

Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey-sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce.

The game is played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.

Institute of Sports Performance Manager, Trevor Humphreys, said: “This funding will give a tremendous boost to our Futsal at Stoke-on-Trent College.”

As well as the Futsal scheme, the Football Foundation delivers Grow the Game as well as the Premier League & the FA Facilities Fund on behalf of the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England.

Since 2000, the Foundation has supported over 15,000 grassroots projects worth more than £1.4bn.
