Sheffield FC Futsal is a club affiliated with Sheffield FC and as such is part of a proud footballing history. Sheffield FC is the oldest association football club formed as it was in 1857.
Originally named Sheffield Stormers, founded by Mark England-Woodcock and Richard Moore. The club set up to compete in the local futsal league held at the Sheffield United Academy in Shirecliffe, Sheffield.
Competing in the Nation Futsal League
Becoming one of the founding members in 2008, Sheffield entered into the FA’s new national league system, the FA National Futsal League. They played their first match on 2 March 2008, ending in a 5-2 victory over Sheffield & Hallamshire Futsal Club. Sheffield would be the only club to beat eventual league winners Tranmere Victoria, running out 10-2 winners with Liam Morris and Frazer Thomas each claiming a hat-trick. Thomas would go on to lead Sheffield’s scoring charts with 15 goals throughout the course of the campaign, helping Sheffield to a third-place finish, 3 points behind second placed Manchester Futsal Club.
The 2009 season saw the club finish in 5th. After notching 7 points from a possible 9 in their first 3 games of the season with wins against Manchester and Leeds, Sheffield went on to lose 4 games on the bounce. They would only win one more game that season, finishing with a heavy 19-3 defeat at the hands of Loughborough University. After the 2009 season had come to a close, Sheffield Futsal Club merged with Sheffield & Hallamshire Futsal Club, in a bid to create a team capable of qualifying for the UEFA Futsal Cup.
As well as this link to proud footballing heritage, Sheffield FC Futsal has an impressive recent history of its own. First competiting in the Northern Futsal League in 2010, Sheffield FC Futsal won the title and then succeeded in defending this title the following season.
Sheffield FC Futsal had been, and remains an integral part of the vanguard of the burgeoning sport of Futsal.#

We will be looking to compete in every game and continue our team and player development programme. There’s a great feeling at Sheffield, the people who run and play for this club are totally dedicated to futsal and the club.’ Head Coach Adam Oldham.
