HISTORY

Louisville Futsal is headed into its 9th season ('17-'18) coordinating a local league for the local Louisville soccer community.  Louisville Futsal was first established back during the winter of 2008-2009.  At that time the 1st Men’s tournament event was hosted with 5 teams.  During this same time, the 1st youth league was created.  There was a total of 6 teams, 50+ players registered for that league program. Since than the Louisville Futsal Winter League program has been growing rapidly.  In 2009-10 the league attracted 16 youth teams, approximately 130+ youth players registered, 2010-11 32 youth teams, approximately 275+ youth players registered, 2011-12 53 youth teams, approximately 350+ youth players registered, and the 2012-13 league season, a total of 65 youth teams, over 550 youth players registered. In each of the last two years we have had 70 teams, approximately 600+ youth players registered.  This past 2016-2017 winter season, the Louisville Futsal Winter League program reached a HIGH mark of 126 teams, over 1000 players registered.

Throughout the last 8 years Louisville Futsal has helped other programs promote futsal (locally) as the #1 way to entertain soccer over the winter season.  Louisville Futsal provided over a 4 year period (with equipment and consultation) assistance with a 6v6 Men’s outdoor tournament event for the (local) Bosnian community . Louisville Futsal has also partnered with a foundation, Soft Touch Soccer Foundation (future 501(c)3), which helps provide a service to the local youth communities (inner city areas) regarding pursuit of enrichment.

The last 5 yrs, Louisville Futsal has hosted the Tiki Taka Youth Futsal Tournament.  The tourney event's first year in February of 2013 had 24 teams. This past February 2017 the tourney attracted 80 teams that came by way of local Louisville teams, Lexington, Cincinnati, OH, and Owensboro, KY.  This year's (2018) Tiki Taka tourney event looks to capitalize with a newly added futsal club that will attend the event; Michigan Futsal Factory Academy (Ann Arbor, MI, led by Drew Ducks, Executive Direct of MI Futsal Factory, previous US Men's Futsal National Team player, plus many other accomplishments, ventures he has engineered.
