The University of Wolverhampton and WLV Sport work in partnership with Birmingham WLV to promote opportunities in futsal for all. The partnership has grown over time but has recently been professionalised and has seen exponential growth across the programme, both in performance and participation. Futsal is a ‘focus sport’ of the university and therefore gains additional support and funding to compete across the competitive structure. This is led by the University and Birmingham WLV head coach, Ikhlaq Hussain. With an extensive background in futsal, Ikhlaq’ s role is to oversee the University’s futsal programme and in doing so, develop talent from all ages, abilities and backgrounds to have the opportunity to participate and compete at all levels on the futsal pyramid. Our partnership is just starting to gain momentum and we hope that this will only become stronger for both organisations and futsal in the coming years.
The university support futsal (male and female) across all levels including BUCS and the National Futsal Series. In doing so, the University offers sports scholarships for students participating at a high level in futsal.
