For Immediate Release

Virginia Futsal Welcomes New and Returning Members for 2019 Season

December 20, 2018 – New and returning clubs and leagues have registered a record number of players for the growing Official US Futsal State Association for Virginia and Washington DC, Virginia Futsal!

Entering it's third season, Virginia Futsal has accumulated many of the ‘powerhouse’ Futsal clubs and leagues around the state of Virginia and the District of Columbia. Virginia Futsal provides an opportunity for growth in the sport that Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Pele attribute much of their skill’s success. Virginia Futsal also provides the only pathway to the US Futsal Regional and National Championships via the VA Futsal State Cup held each January (see below). In October, Virginia Futsal Coaching Education sponsored the first US Futsal State Level 2 License Course in Alexandria and a second course for the Virginia Beach area is in the works for early next year.

Returning VA Futsal clubs Alexandria, FC Dulles, FC Virginia, Northern Virginia Soccer Club, Virginia Rush, Lee Mount Vernon, and UFL (United Futsal League) are now joined by Beach FC/VB Futsal, Braddock Rd, VBR Star, CVU, FC Richmond, PWSI and VISTA. Additional club Futsal programs will be added in the coming weeks.

Beach FC Director of Soccer and Futsal, Marc Waite commented, “Beach FC has enjoyed a long standing and enjoyable relationship with VYSA so therefore it made perfect sense, as we moved into our brand-new Futsal facility, to affiliate and be sanctioned by Virginia Futsal. We look forward to an exciting Futsal future between US Futsal, Virginia Futsal and VB Futsal.”

Virginia Futsal hosts the Virginia Futsal State Championship on January 26-27, 2019. State Champions qualify for the US Futsal Northeast Regional Competition in New Jersey, February 15-18, 2019. Last year, three Virginia Futsal teams became Regional Champions, qualifying for Nationals in California this past July. One of the three competing teams, Alexandria Soccer Association’s 2002 Boys, returned to California and won the USFF (United States Futsal Federation) National Championship back-to-back.
