As the sport continues to multiply, we thank our regulars for your support and ask you to relay to your football clubs how good Futsal is, no matter your age or ability. NNSW Futsal and its affiliated clubs are the only Futsal association with pathways for the elite player. and next year in April, school holidays we will have a NNSW State title for our Community registered teams. A terrific way to prepare for community Football.
Finally, we are looking for sponsors to help lower or eliminate the cost of playing representative Futsal. We have around 4000 members, with parents that may be interested to advertise their profession while also helping the club. Obviously also a tax deduction. Depending on your sponsorship, you will be advertised on Facebook, emails, website, and games.
