Winter Futsal Program

Last updated: August 2019


Program Description


The 2019-2020 Ottawa TFC Futsal program has an all-new format! The league will be split into two entirely separate seasons: a Fall season running from October to December and a Winter season running from January to March. Players can register for either season or both. 


In a fun league where all players spend a lot of time playing, teams will be balanced and have trained coaches and qualified referees. Please note below that some game nights for Futsal have been adjusted this year. Depending on your division, you either play on Friday night or Sunday night.   


Futsal is the FIFA recognized 5v5 format of indoor soccer. Futsal is the globally recognized form of indoor soccer, played all over the world, from grassroots to professional and international levels. It's also played here at our club in local gyms. Futsal is not only fun, but also a great way for players of all ages to develop their technical skills with the ball.
