The University of Edinburgh Futsal Club provides biweekly futsal for students within The University of Edinburgh and non-students alike.
Edinburgh University Futsal Club currently has 3 men's teams competing in different tiers of BUCS, 2 women's teams in BUCS Premier North League and Scottish 1A, as well as two teams in regional leagues in Scotland.
The Men's 1st team competed in BUCS Premiership North Division, the highest level of university futsal in UK from 2017-2019. The 1st team finished in an impressive 3rd place in their first season in the division (2017-2018). The Men's 1st team currently compete in the BUCS Scottish 1A league, having impressively won the league last season (2019-2020) but missing promotion play-offs due to Covid-19. Our 2nd and 3rd teams are looking to gain promotion from Scottish 2A into 1A this year. We are set on winning Scottish 1A in the 20/21 season and making our return to BUCS Premier, having come so close in the 19/20 season.
The Women's 1st team now plays in the Premier North League, while the 2nd Team in the Scottish 1A. In 2018 we were invited to play in the PCU Games in Antwerp, where we ended up beating teams from universities of a variety of countries to win the trophy. Since starting Futsal as part of EUWAFC, Women's Futsal have become the 2016 British Futsal Champions, 2018 PCU Games Womens' Futsal Champions, 2019 British Futsal Championship Silver medal, 2019 PCU Games Bronze Medalists and achieved 2019 second place in our first season of the BUCS Premier North League. We also had the honour to play at the English FA's prestigious national training academy, St George's Park and to be the first Scottish University to win a British Futsal title. Our 2nd team also had a very successful 2018/19 season in the Scottish 1A, coming in second after beating Dundee 15-0 and Stirling 2s 11-1. In the British Futsal Cup they also found success by beating Nottingham 9-0 and Manchester 13-5!
The club caters for all abilities; from experienced to beginners. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, we are working hard to ensure there will be as much futsal as possible next season! So, if you are interested in playing competitively or would like to simply train, don't hesitate to get in touch!
