Do you love football and are considering a college course? 

Here’s a chance to turn your GCSEs into goals and gain a BTEC while playing futsal for Huddersfield Town in The Football League Trust Futsal League.

The Football League Trust Education and Futsal programme (FLT Futsal) is set to feature on Sky Sports’ Soccer AM throughout the season, as they go behind the scenes with the students, and present highlights from a new 2013/14 cup competition, which kicks-off on 25 September.

Rob Wakeling, Soccer AM’s Executive Producer said: “The Skills and tricks involved in Futsal are a perfect fit for Soccer AM.  The tournament is set to be an exciting addition to the show this season.”

The two year scholarship offers 16-18 year olds the chance to find passes on and off the pitch at Football League clubs across the country, as they learn, train, play and work:

LEARN: Study towards a BTEC Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport (worth up to three A-Levels)
TRAIN: Regular Futsal coaching to develop technical, tactical & physical ability
PLAY: Represent Huddersfield Town in the Football League Trust Futsal League
WORK: Open the door to University courses and careers in the Sports Industry

If you have four A-C GCSEs including English and Maths or a BTEC Level 2, then you are eligible for this pioneering educational experience. Those who just missed out on the grades will still be considered. If you have already enrolled on a college course, it’s not too late to switch to FLT Futsal either.

FLT Futsal Manager, John Relish said: “It’s an exciting educational programme, with a real energy. If you’ve a passion for football and a desire to progress to university or work in sport, but don’t think a regular college course is for you, then FLT Futsal is the perfect solution. The online platform offers paperless learning at the club, allowing students to escape the mundane classroom. 

If you love playing football, then you’ll love playing futsal. It’s not every day you get to represent a pro-club, and what’s more you might grab a goal on TV this season.” 

What is Futsal?

The world's fastest growing indoor sport, which showcases close ball skills, increased touches, quick decision making, creativity and tactical nous. The five-a-side game using hockey size goals and a heavier size four ball with 30% less bounce is the only officially recognised form of indoor football accepted by UEFA and FIFA.

Football League Trust Futsal League

As the students advance academically, The FL Trust Futsal League ensures they develop athletically too. Clubs compete in regional divisions every Wednesday, between September and June, producing derby clashes every bit as passionate as their 11-aside counterparts. At Huddersfield Town you will get the chance to take on local rivals, such as Leeds Utd and Bradford City.
