Key reasons to join the FDL
Our thrilling football league then knockout system, all in one competition makes every game an exciting one. Our freestyle and flair encouraged futsal league guarantees a samba feel to the way the games are played with ball manipulation and goals being the focus of the games.
Same location every week
You don’t have to figure out how to get to a different venue every week as the matches for your tournament are always in the same location. Once you’ve been to that location, you save travel planning time every week! Matches are every Saturday from 12pm.
3G and 4G pitches only
You will always be playing on the best quality pitches available. Also, games are only called off due to adverse weather conditions and never because of the pitch conditions, which means players have the opportunity to maximise their amount of football game time throughout the season.
Opportunity to win medals and trophies
You don’t have to wait until the end of the traditional football season to win medals and trophies. This competition allows for an increased match vs. reward ratio by having winter tournaments, summer tournaments and super cups. This will also boost player morale and commitment knowing they have more opportunities to win medals and trophies.
Scouts in attendance

Payment plans made easy
We are aware that package prices can sometimes be daunting for a team, or what can sometimes feel like an individual who has this financial responsibility on their shoulders. However, it can be made easy with these following steps:
1. Discuss the costs with your club representatives and parents
A challenge shared is a challenge halved and making everyone who is involved aware of the costs and other responsibilities will encourage teamwork and successful outcomes.
2. Share the costs
Dividing the costs across the club and with individual parents is a speedy way to be able to afford any fees and meet those deadlines.
Example: if there are 10 players in the team and the deposit is £100, dividing the cost amongst those 10 players makes the deposit an affordable £10 per player. This rule can also be applied with any other fees in the lead up to the tournaments and competitions you request to join.
3. Create accountability
Those who are serious about progressing their football career or learning experience will be committed to joining our league. Setting pre-deadlines and milestones amongst your team players, parents and staff, will ensure that you have a smooth transition into entering our tournaments and competitions for the season.
Example: if we have given you a deadline to submit information or a fee by 1st July, make sure that you set your team players, parents and staff, a deadline of 24th June - a week before our deadline, to make sure you meet all Football Development League requests.
If in doubt - contact us
We are here to help, not hinder or exclude. If there's anything you're unsure of, or there are deadlines you feel you cannot meet, contact us. We will always try to see how we can support, where possible.
