The England national futsal team represents England during international futsal competitions such as the FIFA Futsal World Cup and the European Championships. It is under the direction of The Football Association. Although futsal in England has been around for a number of years, the national team was first formed in 2003, after futsal started to gain popularity in 2002.[2]

Home matches are played at various venues around the country. Friendly matches are played with teams from other European nations, and also compete in Four Nations Tournaments each season, along with teams around Europe. England has entered the World Futsal Cup but failed to qualify in 2008. Also in 2008 England entered 'The Kuala Lumpur World 5’s tournament' in Malaysia, but failed to win a game.


This is the under 15s team that has been updated.[3]
