Our sport and work-skills Futsal BTEC was the first study programme of it’s kind in the UK to include Futsal as an enrichment tool. Since creating and launching the programme, nobody has continually invested more in it’s development than @Futsal Group.
The courses are delivered using @Futsal’s specially created online Virtual Learning Resource, which is called Inspire. This pioneering platform allows you to work remotely from electronic devices. So get away from conventional books and paper and enjoy learning by stepping into our 21st century learning portal!
Our sport and work-skills study programmes are designed to provide multiple progression pathways into Higher Education or employment. The Sport & Active Leisure industry is rapidly increasing, and Universities are increasingly on the look-out for learners with a qualified interest in Futsal.
You can access careers advice, guidance and information through our Inspire platform, as well as a number of work experience opportunities within @Futsal Group. Furthermore, you’ll also receive free entry onto the FA Level 1 Futsal coaching and refereeing courses.
We work closely with partners including The Premier League, The FA, The Football League, AoC Sport and the English Colleges FA. Our combined sporting and business expertise are the ideal backdrop for our innovative portfolio of education programmes.
In spring 2015, @Futsal Group signed a strategic partnership agreement with AoC Sport. We are proud to be working with the leading organisation for post-16 sporting development, and look forward to establishing Futsal at the forefront of post-16 football development for Colleges & Academies.
“Signing this agreement with AoC Sport really underlines our passion and commitment to delivering at the very highest level. What we have developed is unique and world class. It is a fantastic opportunity for any establishments or individuals that share our own drive, ambition and commitment to quality.” Frank Rodriguez, @Futsal Group CEO

If you’re interested in setting up a Futsal Academy at your establishment, be it a professional football club or an educational organisation, please contact Marcus Seaton on 07770 976 642 or at [email protected].
Our joint venture opportunity with Oldham College saw us radically transform their tired sports hall facility into a vibrant Futsal and multi-sports hub, which is a fully operating Futsal arena as well as a unique addition to their campus.
We’ve enjoyed some fantastic success stories from the thousands of scholars that have graduated from one of our Futsal Academies. One of the things that we pride ourselves on is creating as many different career progression pathways as possible, and in Georgia, Alfie and Tom we have three shining examples. Where will your Futsal Academy journey take you…?
“If it wasn’t for the education and futsal scholarship, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I have such a passion for football and futsal, so being able to work at Reading Football Club now is a real privilege and that dream came true because I joined the Futsal Academy programme.”
“The course is very enjoyable and informative. It gives you an insight of what it’s like to be a footballer, representing a professional football club! The playing side has a very positive impact on your 11-a-side performance as well as your Futsal ability. Not to mention I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to play Futsal for England!”
“For me it was the ideal route to university as you learn a lot about the sports industry as a whole, whilst competing against other clubs at Futsal and football.”
