What is the United Futsal Champions Cup Series?

  • 8 Clubs will be selected from 6 Conferences in the United States representing the Northeast, Southeast, North Central, South Central, Northwest, Southwest.
  • The Northern and Southern Conferences will make up a region, containing 16 total clubs each, divided into the East, Central and West Region.
  • Each club will form 10 teams to participate in the Conference Championships each Winter and Regional Championships each Summer.
  • There will be 5 Boys and 5 Girls teams competing in each of the following age groups: U8, U10, U12, U14, U16
  • Winning Teams in both the Conference and Regional Championships advance to the Nationals and World Futsal Cup, respectively, at no additional cost (only travel).
"The key to developing futsal as an actual sport and not just a development training tool is competition. Without a major prize to be won, futsal is no different than any other soccer training tool"
- Rob Andrews, President of United Futsal™

Celebrating with stars!

Following each championship victory, the newly crowned titleholders celebrated with prominent leaders in the futsal and soccer world. Pablo Vilches, Real Betis Director of Futsal, and Gabriel Lima, Italian National Futsal Team captain, were in attendance at the closing ceremonies. Marcelo Gonçalves Costa Lopes, former Brazilian National Soccer Team defender and 1998 FIFA World Cup call-up, also congratulated winning teams on stage. All three individuals presented medals and trophies to the champions as well as signed futsal balls by Roberto Carlos to top scorers in each division.
