The Oxford Lions Futsal Club, who were quarter finalists in the FA Futsal Cup two weeks ago have impressed the FA so much that they have been invited to play in the National Futsal League.

The team are based at the Park Sports Centre, Wheatley and will play in the newly formed National Futsal League Division 2 and will play against teams such as Reading, Gloucester and Plymouth.

The partnership of Manager Chris Chesterman and Coach Enrique Guillen are adamant that the team will become stronger and become one of the biggest futsal teams in the UK.

Chris says 'We want to expand the team with players from the local football community and the University, and the next goal is to have players from the team representing their country at futsal, and playing in the National League gives our players this opportunity'.
