BT Sport to broadcast FA National Futsal Series final this summer
BT Sport will provide unmissable coverage of this summer's forthcoming FA National Futsal Series final. Read on for further details about this exciting new partnership.
The Grand Final of the FA National Futsal Series / Summer Showdown will be live on BT Sport on June 27 this summer.
The FA National Futsal Series is the top-flight English league for futsal for both the women’s and men’s game.
The Summer Showdown is a one-off cup competition played over 6 weeks to decide who will be nominated for the UEFA Futsal Champions League.
If you’re new to the sport, futsal is the only format of small-sided football formally recognised by FIFA. The ball is smaller and more dense than a football, which encourages fast end-to-end action that develops technique and skill.
This new partnership is a landmark moment for English futsal and opens up an exciting opportunity for the future.
Paul Szumilewicz, The FA National Futsal Series Managing Director, shared his thoughts on today's announcement.
“This is a game-changing moment for The FA National Futsal Series and English futsal as a whole," he said.
"Our objective is to grow participation and viewership of this great sport in England, and this new partnership offers an incredible opportunity to showcase the best of English futsal to a huge new audience. The future is bright.”
The move marks another venture into the growing sport of futsal for BT Sport.
Next season, we will continue our coverage of the UEFA Futsal Champions League in addition to our outstanding portfolio of football rights including the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League.
