Futsal is the only FIFA endorsed version of 5-a-side football, with roots in South America. Played indoors, it encourages skill development of players, as the space is very limited, and players are pushed to make quicker decisions, and with faster reflexes. The University has 2 Men's and 1 Women's Futsal team - further information on the women's team can be found on our Women's Football page.

The men's Futsal team was established in 2003 and ran under the umbrella of the football club until 2016 when it became an independent club within the Athletic Union. Leeds Beckett Futsal has a successful record within BUCS, having always played in the top tier and have been BUCS Trophy Champions twice. The new Club now has 2 teams who train weekly and compete in the BUCS Northern Premier and Tier 2 respectively.

Head Coach : Ivan Solvas – UEFA B Futsal – FA Mod 3

Proud Catalan Ivan has coached all age groups in his home City of Barcelona and is a pure Futsal fanatic with extensive technical and tactical knowledge who has been able to develop a strong group of players, giving them sound advice within a comprehensive training programme which has allowed the club to take the next step forward.

The Club run a trials process in late September from which 24-30 players to join for the season.
