What is the Showcase Series?

Each showcase series will bring together Futsal dedicated programs into an elite environment to compete against each other in and effort to further develop each respective program.

Futsal is an experience like no other and our showcase will focus on providing the best locations, referees and opposition to excel.

Each age group will feature 3 or 4 teams providing each team with 2 to 3 games over a day or weekend.

We hope that our showcase experience will help Futsal clubs grow their reputation and help promote the sport to a wider audience.

2021/2022 Showcase Series Rules and Info


  • Venues to be confirmed closer to showcase commencement due to COVID safety protocols.

Participating Teams
To be confirmed shortly

Age Divisions/Groups
Boys & Girls U8 - U19 Triangle Futsal League Showcase Series reserves th the right to remove any team who fails to comply with TFL's participation agreement.

Team Application
The league will be taking applications for the showcase series shortly.

Teams can apply for one, two or three showcase events.

Price may vary per event and per team.

Showcase Schedule
Each age group will play minimum two games and maximum of three games per showcase. Age groups will complete all games on one same day. Third games may be played on Second day of showcase.

There is no coaching license to coach a team. Any adult who is registered with the team as a coach or manager can sit the bench.  This is a great option for teams with outdoor coaches who want to take a break, but still want their teams to have fun and play. 

Coaches with multiple teams
We will accommodate coaches with multiple teams by attempting to schedule them with back-to-back games at the same facility as much as possible.  We have been very successful in the past, so you are encouraged to split your outdoor teams into two futsal teams, and we will make every effort to schedule your games back to back, however, there may be an occasional gap (one hour) between games if there are multiple sister teams in a bracket.  If you coach more than two teams and need to be all the games, please indicate that specifically in the comments section on your team's detail page.  We will make every attempt to accommodate this request (coaching more than two teams), however, due to various factors, such as different age groups playing in different facilities and court availability, this may not always be possible.  A coach will most likely have to go from one school to another for each division. We highly recommend that you have an assistant coach (s) to help in this circumstance.

It will be very difficult to schedule coaches back to back when they coach one team in a one referee age group (U14 and younger) and another team in a 2-referee game (U15 and older).

Game Scorecards
Before each game, a pre-printed game card will be available from the referees. The cards will be populated with player names and numbers. Please check the cards for accuracy and then hand them back to the referees before the game begins. Upon completion of the game, the winning coach should sign the card and return to referee

Competition Format & Rules
Official futsal FIFA Rules and Regulations as stated under the Laws of The Game will be enforced. Exceptions are noted below under House Rules. You may print up a copy of the Laws of the Game at the Gateway website.

Player Registration Fee - All players must be registered with USYF and releases signed by player/parent/guardian (P/P/G).  The fee is $13.50 per player and is completed on line only.  When the team manager inputs a player into the roster, an e-mail is sent to P/P/G with instructions as to how to complete player registration.  There is no fee for managers, coaches, or assistant coaches, unless they are also players.

Roster Cards
Durham Futsal League will institute the issuance of roster cards if required. To be eligible to play, each player must be on the roster. Roster cards are issued only after full payment of fees, signed Medical / Media Release forms have been received and all players have been registered online.

Ejections - Red Cards
The minimum penalty for an ejection is that the player shall not be permitted to play in the immediate next match of play.  If the player is rostered on two teams and has a scheduled match on the same day after the red card, the player is ineligible to play in that game. If the player who received the red card, does not have another match that day, then the player must sit out the next immediate scheduled match. The League, in consultation with the Head Referee, will then decide if the player or coach will sit out an additional game (s) the following week   The player or coach receiving the red card must sit out a minimum of one game.  

Coach Ejections
If a coach is ejected from any match, a referee’s report of the incident shall be turned over to the  League administrator by the referee.  

The minimum penalty for an ejection is that the coach shall not be permitted to coach, remain on the player’s bench or in the gymnasium in the immediate next match.

The maximum penalty, after review by the Competition Committee, may result in the individual coach or team’s expulsion from the League.
