Why The New England Futsal Academy League?
The New England Futsal Academy League is part of The NECSL, New England's largest club youth soccer league. Comprised of 65+ clubs and 1365 teams this Fall, The NECSL will be the home of close to 2000 teams for the spring 2023 outdoor season. We are excited to bring the same type of transparent, affordable and player focused environment to the Futsal landscape in New England. Our ability to make sure teams are competing at the correct level with limited travel is a organizational strength. We also enjoy working closely with our member clubs to create and maintain minimum standards that enhance the game day experience for our players, teams, families and clubs.
What organization is sanctioning The New England Futsal Academy League?
The NEFAL will be sanctioned by Massachusetts Youth Soccer and USYS. We have fully supported the USYS player development pathway through The NECSL. Players that are currently registered with a NECSL club will not have to pay an additional registration fee to compete in The NEFAL. Any futsal specific players that will be competing in The NEFAL will only have to pay an $11 registration fee via Massachusetts Youth Soccer or their individual State Association. This saves players, teams and families money while providing a National Championship Series level event for our teams to compete in this winter.
