Football NSW has announced that Futsal is making a comeback in 2021 with two prestigious competitions confirmed in conjunction with various Futsal Premier League clubs alongside two Football NSW affiliates (TAG) PCYC Marrickville and The Centre Dural.

Football NSW Futsal Manager Jordan Guerreiro was delighted to see the sport given the green light to have competitions run once more considering the heartache its passed during the last two years due to the pandemic.
“I am extremely excited and proud that we have been able to engage with key members of our Futsal community to get Futsal up and running again in 2021.
“It’s been a difficult period as most can imagine with all the unknown information and protocols with the return to community sport along with the Public Health Order from the NSW Government during our lockdowns.
“A considerable amount of effort has gone into providing opportunities where we can ensure that our Futsal community can come back and play our wonderful game in the best and most efficient way possible. We are prioritising the safety of the participants in coordination with our Futsal affiliates and Futsal clubs through Covid Compliance to the NSW PHO.
“We viewed this opportunity with two of our Affiliates reaching out to provide this opportunity to showcase what Futsal means to the community and the clubs involved. It was necessary to provide these competitions at this time of the year as it plays an integral role to the development of our sport and players.
“We view this opportunity as a Futsal fiesta type of environment where all our players can have fun playing the sport with their teammates as well as enjoying the atmosphere in celebrating Futsal as a game and developing their ability and potential.
“I would like to acknowledge and thank all key members who were involved in this process in having these competitions commence in what have been unprecedented times for all in our sport.
“Good luck to all clubs and affiliates involved in getting their respective competitions up and running in what will be a solid 2021 season for all involved.”
