York Futsal is a Charter Standard National Futsal League club based in York.
Established over 5 years ago under the University of York, the club has achieved success in becoming champions of the FA National Futsal League North 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons, and are now established in the National Futsal League.
The club also has a thriving junior section with over one hundred children regularly attending coaching sessions and participating in youth fixtures both at the York Futsal home at York Sport Arena and further afield.
In addition to this, York Futsal also works in partnership with established professional futsal clubs abroad to provide academy players with the opportunity to play youth futsal teams in Spain and Italy, and to also further their educational and cultural understanding of the sport.
Earlier this year the club became a Community Interest Company (C.I.C) to help further benefit the local community it serves and to help support its mission to increase participation in the sport of futsal and to create a pathway for junior players to realise playing at the highest level. All of which is built on the foundation of York Futsal core values: Respect, Dedication, Humility, Magnanimity and Unity.
Head Coach Junior Roberti had this to say about the continuing growth of the club: ‘It’s a very important time for us here in York, we need to keep offering the best. Not better than anyone as our competition is with ourselves, so York Futsal better than York Futsal everyday. This coming season we believe NFL will prove to be a good community based competition and I can’t wait to start again!’
