Inspiresport is delighted to announce an exciting new 3-year partnership with Manchester Futsal Club.
Following the provision of several successful futsal tours to European destinations such as Valencia and Madrid, we’ve decided to add this increasingly popular sport into our product offering by working with one of the leading clubs in the UK.
Manchester Futsal Club was established in 2006 and quickly proved that with quality coaching it could provide a fantastic pathway for players wanting to play at the highest level of English Futsal.
With over 200 members across their youth, men’s and women’s programmes, the club creates an inclusive community founded on a desire to champion the development of futsal throughout Manchester, and provide opportunities for more people to engage with this fast-paced sport.
Research provided to The FA by Liverpool John Moores University suggests that participants playing Futsal receive the ball six times more often than they would do playing 11-a-side football, allowing players to perform more individual techniques such as passes, controls, fakes, feints, dribbles and runs with the ball.
Steve Butchard, CEO at inspiresport said:
“We are absolutely delighted with our new partnership with Manchester Futsal Club. Many of the world’s best footballers credit Futsal as key to their skill development in the 11-a-side game. Thanks to our relationship with Manchester Futsal Club, we are thrilled to be offering youth and school teams the opportunity to play and train at yet another location! Futsal is often played as part of a balanced football training programme, but the rise in popularity of Futsal as a sport in its own right is really exciting and we’re thrilled to add it to our existing product portfolio. ”
Simon Wright, CEO at Manchester Futsal Club said:
“This is a truly exciting partnership that we’re launching with Inspiresport – the first of it’s kind for a futsal club in the UK. Manchester is a renowned global sporting capital and now we will be able to offer an exciting futsal opportunity to teams, schools, colleges and universities. We are working alongside a leader in the field of delivering of high-quality sports tours and we cannot wait to get started. Futsal is growing in popularity in the UK and we’re delighted to share this bright future with the Inspiresport team.”
