CARLISLE FUTSAL
MISSION&VISION

With a membership of 150+ of the most talented Futsal players and coaches in the region we are proudly representing the people of Cumbria on the national Futsal scene.

Our mission is simple and has been the same since 2012 when we formed the Club – “Create a Club that the people of Carlisle and Cumbria can be proud of”. It has driven everything we have done since then and has been the cornerstone of all of our achievements to date.

Our values are more than just a set of words. They define the culture of our Club and every member must abide by them. They are; openness, honesty, integrity, collaboration (working together), mutual dependancy (trusting one another) and innovation (not copying others).

LEARN MOREABOUT FUTSAL

The Club provides members with the opportunity to learn and develop knowledge and skills in relation to playing Futsal.

Futsal is widely played across the world, and is the small sided football format that is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Futsal began in Uruguay and Brazil where the large crowded cities and a shortage of playing pitches forced a football mad populace to play small sided football and in 1936 the first rules emerged. Futsal was the name chosen by FIFA, which is simply a combination of the Spanish words for ‘hall’ (Sala) and ‘football’ (Futbol): hence ‘Futsal’.

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Fabregas, amongst many others, have played Futsal to develop their skills.

Futsal is not just a tool for Football. It is a beautiful sport in its own right with its own World and European Cups with professional leagues around the world.
