Cornwall FA are delighted to share the details of the Pokémon Youth Futsal Cup, with booking now open for the county qualifiers running in April.
Futsal is a fast paced, exciting, and skilful game that allows players to master the ball. A smaller 5v5 format that is played with a smaller, heavier ball allows for players to work on their technical skills in reduced spaces encouraging individualism, combination play and fast counter attacking play.
How does the FA Pokémon Youth Futsal Cup work?
The FA Pokémon Youth Futsal Cup is a national competition whereby the winners of county qualifiers progress to and are expected to attend a Regional Tournament (7th May - U10 and 12 Boys/Mixed and Girls Competition and 8th May - U14 and U16 Boys/Mixed and Girls Competition, both days at the University of Wolverhampton) and then the National Finals in Spring 2022 (18th and 19th June at the University of Wolverhampton).
The competition is open to boys/mixed and girls teams at U10, U12, U14 and U16 age groups. As per FA regulations for this competition, players may not play outside of their age banding (please see Competition Rules Document below for clarification) as these strands allow sufficient scope of competitions to provide for all.
