Leading the Way - Business & Football Working together
@Futsal Limited represents a multi-million pound investment to roll-out over 30 unique indoor football clubs across the UK, within the next 2 to 3 years. The clubs will be dedicated to playing the only form of indoor football approved by FIFA, called Futsal. This is reported to be the fastest growing indoor sport in the world, with over 30 million players across the globe.
The business was founded by Managing Director Frank Rodriguez, who was voted national emerging entrepreneur of the year in 2005, after selling Covion Limited, the business which he co-founded with partner David Steventon for £33 million in 2007. Covion was also the 4th fastest growing business in the UK and one of the top 40 fastest growing in Europe. Coming from Spanish origin (Spain are twice world Futsal Champions) and being a licenced FA coach, Frank has been incorporating Futsal techniques into coaching and playing methods for several years. David Steventon joined @Futsal in January 2008 as Chairman, and together, having a proven track record for developing rapidly growing and successful businesses, they are driving @Futsal forward.
The business is led and driven by a strong management team and board, comprising of people with extensive experience across leisure and business. This includes Operations Director Peter Robinson who was previously with David Lloyd, Graeme Dell who was the former England Futsal Manager and Jim Sanger who was previously a non executive director of Powerleague.
The business is well structured and funded to support its corporate aims and as such is delighted to have leading investment partners Foresight Group actively involved in enabling the growth and development of the business. We have robust banking partners in HSBC and our corporate accountants BDO Stoy Hayward have worked closely with the management team for a number of years.
We are also very pleased to be actively engaged with both national and regional football associations in pioneering all aspects of Futsal development in the UK. The sport is rapidly forming a key part of core football development programs of the future. We already host a number of national events and we will be aiming to provide the venues for future FA leagues, competitions and training programs.
We consider @ Futsal to be a business with rapid growth potential, a lucrative and sustainable business profile.
