Futsal International

We are delighted to confirm the expansion of EDF structure to cover Futsal following on the Futsal championship at Oxford and also at Birmingham (U21).

The creation of Futsal structure under EDF is a commitment from EDF to support the future championships for Youth, U21 and Men/Women competitions. As well as the competitions – EDF will be supporting England Deaf International Futsal after FA have declined their support for England Men and Women Deaf Futsal teams.

After the sudden withdrawal of FA support in March 2019, England Deaf Women Futsal Team, who have qualified for the World Championship, having finished 4th at European Championship in 2018 are now left with no support from FA who has supported the Women Futsal side since 2006.

EDF will be committed to support the England Women Deaf Futsal team, in their preparation for the World Deaf Futsal Championship at Winterthur, Switzerland in November 2019, within their existing resources and expertises.
