Dublin, Ohio (August 24, 2023) - Emerald City Futsal, a premier futsal club located in Dublin, Ohio, proudly announced its official participation in Season Three of the Champions Cup Series (CCS) for the 2023-2024 season.

Emerald City Futsal, coached by John Lawrence and Ryan Bunner, has deep roots within the sport, with over 15 years of experience. What started as a dream to establish their own club became a reality in 2022, and the club's growth has been nothing short of remarkable. In 2023, they proudly entered five teams into various regional competitions, demonstrating their dedication to elevating futsal within their community, and now they have set their sights on the Champions Cup Series.

“Joining the United Futsal Champions Cup Series is a pivotal moment for our club,” said Director of Coaching, John Lawrence. “We are excited to provide our players with unparalleled opportunities for growth, competition, and development in the world of futsal. We intend to train and play at a higher level than has ever been seen before in our area."

Emerald City Futsal's decision to join the United Futsal Champions Cup Series was motivated by firsthand experiences from players within their club. The exposure to the highest levels of competition, specialized training, and the opportunity to compete on a global scale were key factors.

"This is one of the biggest opportunities in futsal to grow the game," stated Lawrence. "The benefits are immense, from the level of competition to the chance to compete against the best in the world."

By partnering with United Futsal, Emerald City Futsal now gains access to valuable resources, including coaches’ educational opportunities through United Futsal University, access to player development camps such as National Training Camp and the FUTURES program, international competitions, and a shared vision for the growth of futsal. This partnership reflects their belief that futsal is not merely an off-season activity for outdoor soccer players, but a sport that complements and enhances overall player development.

In preparation for the upcoming season, Emerald City Futsal will conduct meticulous tryouts to select players based on skill, level of play, and coachability. The chosen teams will undergo specialized training, including speed and agility sessions, friendly matches, and team-focused training to ensure they are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.

Emerald City Futsal's partnership with United Futsal marks a significant milestone in the club's journey to elevate the sport of futsal. Their dedication to excellence, player development, and the growth of the game aligns seamlessly with the values upheld by the Champions Cup Series, and they’re ready to get Season Three started.
