FA Youth Futsal Cup Qualifiers Round-Up

Here's a round up of the Youth Futsal action from Paignton, Exeter and Plymouth over the last month

Over the last 2 months, Devon FA have hosted qualifying events for youth teams entering the FA Youth Futsal Cup. Sponsored by Pokémon, the Futsal Youth Cup by England Football is a national futsal competition open to clubs across England. The programme offers a competition for both boys and girls, at u10, u12, u14 & u16 age groups

In November, we received over 90 team entries from 37 youth clubs around the county, entering teams at various age groups.

In December & January, we hosted Local Qualifying events (Round 1 of the competition) across the county at:

  • Paignton
  • Exeter
  • Plymouth

Paignton Academy’s Indoor Futsal Hub hosted the County Finals (Round 2) on:

  • Girls Finals (Saturday 22nd January)
  • Boys Finals (Sunday 23rd January)

Congratulations to the following teams that have qualified for the regional finals stage (Round 3), hosted by the FA in Wolverhampton in May 2022:

   Boys Girls
U10 Fremington Hunter District
U12 Saints Southwest Devon Hunter District

We wish all teams the best of luck in the Regional Finals and fingers-crossed for some Devon teams qualifying from this heat to the National Finals in June 2022
