Futsal is a technical, tactical game. It is renowned for being the fastest moving, fastest-growing indoor sport.
Futsal is a relatively new sport to students in the UK, and particularly in Scotland. Currently, we offer the opportunity to men and women to participate in BUCS leagues. We hope to soon be able to offer regional competition, along with game awareness and workforce development opportunities.

My name is Colin Harley. I started to use futsal as part of training for the boys team I coached a few years ago. Since then, I’ve completely caught the futsal bug. I love the fast pace of the game, it is a simple game to begin to play and those who embrace its unique facets can benefit hugely from the almost endless opportunities for creativity and complexity.
I’ve played, coached, run leagues, run teams and developed that love for the game in a number of ways. I have supported both Edinburgh University and West Lothian College in the establishment of their futsal clubs. Recently I was involved in the organisation and selection of Scottish delegations taking part in the International Futsal Alliance (IFA) Men’s World Cup in China, and the previous year’s Under 17 IFA Men’s World Cup. I am a great believer in the potential of futsal as a student sport.
We welcome all new clubs and want to offer everyone the appropriate entry level to Futsal along with providing an avenue to the highest level of University sport and other pathways beyond. I’ve experienced futsal played at the highest level – it is so accessible and a hugely intense experience. Futsal people love to spread the word – get involved and (like everyone who does) you will soon absolutely love it, look to get the most out of it, and tell your friends.
