This great competition is designed for both genders; girls will be given the option of playing one age group below.

The Competition Structure
The Brisbane Central Futsal Junior League season has a format of 10 rounds, 20 games in total (including finals), where each team will play each other team twice in the one season. The top four teams will play off in the semi-finals with the winners of each advancing to the Grand Final. The winners of the Grand Final will be crowned Champions for the year. We have also allocated some weekends without games to give the teams a chance to have training sessions as well.
Champions and Runners-Up will be awarded medals at the completion of the Grand Final for each age group.
There will be awards for MVP, Golden Boot and Golden Glove for each age group.
Live streaming of some games, including coach and player interviews may take place during the competition. Images of players, coaches and games will be taken during the competition. These may be posted on the Brisbane Central Futsal Facebook, Instagram and YouTube pages. By participating in BCF competitions – clubs, coaches, managers and players give BCF permission to use material for marketing and promotional purposes.
All players will be given the opportunity to trial for Brisbane Central Futsal representative teams in State and National Futsal tournaments.
The majority of games will be played at our West End headquarters, depending on the age group. Dependent on the number of participating teams, other venues within Brisbane may be sourced.
By joining the competition, teams and players will have the opportunity to be involved in a fun and family-friendly community with a high overall level of Football/Futsal players. Actively participate in intense Futsal games (Futsal offers 600% more touches on the ball than 11-a-side Football) and develop your skills and competitive spirit.
For an extra bonus our West End facility has live scoring, and all goals scored are recorded to video, meaning kids can go home and watch replays of all goals from their games.
