A National League Futsal club for the borough of Stockport, established in 2012. The club currently offers opportunities for adult males aged 16+ to access regular futsal training sessions.
The First Team will be competing in the FA National Futsal League Division 2 for the 2013-14 Season. A development squad also competes in the Manchester FA Futsal Fives League on a weekly basis.
Futsal has seen significant growth in England over the last few years, and Manchester Futsal Club, the National League North Winners 2011/12 have actively supported the growth of the game in Greater Manchester along with Manchester County FA.
Futsal had been taking in place in Stockport for the past few years, mainly through ad hoc coaching sessions with local grassroots clubs, with youths in community sessions, and within Schools, with the Stockport Futsal Cup running annually since 2011.
Seb Rowe, then Football Development Officer at Stockport Sports Trust, and Mauro Beca, an experienced Futsal player and coach decided there should be a platform for adults to access the game in the area.
On 1st July 2012 Stockport Futsal Club was born. Initially training sessions took place at Life Leisure Houldsworth Village in Reddish before moving to Stockport Academy in Cheadle Heath in August 2012.
