THE "MAGIC" BEHIND THE F2 ACADEMY
The combination of both Futsal & Football has a proven history of developing football players who are magicians in possession. Think of Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi, Inesta, De Bruyne, Coutinho and you will not be surprised that Futsal has been an important part of their football education. The space and time given to a futsal players is the equivalent t playing 37 vs 37 on an 11-a-side pitch! If you consider the skills required to receive safely, escape pressure, beat a player 1v1, find a pass and move to create space - the you can imagine the benefits of futsal. Having only been in England for a short amount of time, Futsal is rapidly becoming a main element in professional football academies with the Premier League even organising tournaments for academies. The F2 Academy is the only coaching provider in the area that can offer the highest standard of Futsal and Football coaching.
