Applications open for the FAW Futsal League

The 2019/20 FAW Futsal League has been launched and applications are now open to any team wishing to enter the competition. 

Wales’ only national Futsal league is celebrating its tenth season this year, and football and futsal clubs from across the country are invited to apply for a place in the competition. 

Cardiff University are once again the defending champions, having won their fifth title last season. Wrexham Futsal Club and The New Saints are the only other two teams to have won the title to date.

As well as prize money on offer, the champions also represent Wales in the UEFA Futsal Champions League. This season, Cardiff Uni travelled to Macedonia, where they finished third in their Preliminary Qualifying Round Group. Players from within the league have also gone on to represent Wales at international level, offering another incentive to join.

Clubs wishing to enter the League for the 2019/20 season can now do so via the COMET system. Entries are open until Friday 1 November. 

 

Introduction to the FAW Futsal League

We’re delighted you’re considering entering a team into the FAW Futsal League, which is open for applications ahead of the 2019/20 season commencing. 

This is Wales’ only national Futsal League. Our aim at the FAW is to develop the League over the coming seasons in order to produce a futsal programme that will allow Welsh teams to develop and compete at European club and international level.

Now in its tenth season, the League has grown into Wales’ premier Futsal competition, offering a place in the UEFA Futsal Champions League to the winners. 

Competition Format

  • The FAW Futsal League is split into two conferences, Northern and Southern. 
  • Each team plays the other side in their Conference in a round-robin format, with the number of matches between teams to be determined by the FAW once the number of competition entries has been finalised.
  • Teams are allocated three points for a win, one for a draw and none for a defeat. 
  • The winners of each conference will then play each other in the FAW Futsal League Playoff Final to determine the champion club. 
  • The champion club will be nominated by the FAW to represent Wales in the following season’s UEFA Futsal Champions League. 

Matchdays

  • The FAW Administration will determine the match dates, which can only be changed by the FAW in extreme circumstances. 
  • The match venues and halls will be fixed by the FAW with both Conference matches being played consecutively, unless the FAW decides otherwise. 
  • Clubs are permitted to request a preferred kick-off time, but the confirmed kick-off times are determined by the FAW. In the case of disputes between the clubs regarding kick-off times, the FAW decides the outcome. 
  • In venues without any proper warm-up area, and in the case of two consecutive matches, the organisers must leave at least 15 minutes for the warm-up
  • All match team sheets will be submitted via the COMET system.
