Watt is Futsal?
Futsal is recognised as FIFA`s official indoor football game and is a fast paced five-a-side game with played with a smaller harder ball than traditional football. Our club started in September 2019 and is one of the newest clubs in the Sports Union.
We currently have two teams competing in BUCS with our 1s going unbeaten in the league earning promotion to the top division in Scotland in our second season and our 2s finishing 6th out of the 9 teams in the second division in its first season competing. The club also hosts recreational sessions where we welcome all abilities to come and play.

The club currently have two sessions a week with one team and one recreational. The team sessions are an hour and a half and are invite only, with trials taking place at the start each semester. These sessions involve a short warm-up followed by drills and usually some matches to finish off.
Within our recreational sessions, teams are chosen at the start and then straight into matches. These sessions are open to students of all abilities, and we welcome people who have never played before to get involved for some fun and fitness.
