The prestigious Series Futsal Australia tournament will be fought out in West Australia for the first time this October.
Having been held at the famous Futsal Oz stadiums in Melbourne since the competition’s inception in 2012, the Series Futsal Australia Cup will be played at the Western Australian State Futsal Centre in Bibra Lake, south of Fremantle, on October 7-9.
The cup (formerly known as the Futsal Oz Australian Futsal League or ‘FAFL’) is traditionally held each April and September, but due to the FIFA Futsal World Cup in Columbia this September, Series Futsal organisers have elected to hold the cup back a month to allow players from the Australian and other international teams the chance to play for their Australian clubs.
Futsal clubs from all over Australia will be eligible to compete at the three-day elite futsal competition, with as many as three teams selected from state-based competitions such as Series Futsal Victoria, the South Australian Futsal League, Western Australian State Futsal League, Brisbane Futsal League and the Far North Coast NSW.
Series Futsal Australia commission also reserves the right to accept wildcard entries from clubs deemed to compete at the elite level.

QUOTES; PETER PARTHIMOS, CEO and Founder, Futsal Oz
“Our partners in West Australia have been involved in Series Futsal Australia since Day 1, so it’s fitting that we take this great tournament over their home ground this October,” said Peter Parthimos.
“And it’s a timely coincidence that we play at the home state of reigning Series Futsal champions Claremont Cambio Cumbre Futsal Club.
“All of the staff at Futsal Oz and Series Futsal are excited about the adventure over to Perth. It’s the next chapter in the professionalism of the sport.
“Our intention is to have at least one Series Futsal Australia held interstate each year, so we’re looking forward to seeing where the next one will be.”
