Futsal is a football-based fast pace game played on a hardcourt like a basketball court, smaller than a football pitch, and mainly indoors. It has similarities to five-a-side football and forces the players to develop a much higher level of close contact skills. It is hugely popular Internationally and on the success of Great Britain Deaf Women’s Futsal European in Brazil 2023 the FA have since begun investing millions into building Futsal up in the UK.
The Deaflympics, also known as Deaflympiad are a periodic series of multi-sport events sanctioned by The International Olympic Committee (at which Deaf athletes compete at an elite level). Following delays due to Covid, we have just received the go-ahead for GB, alongside eleven other countries, to compete across twelve days of Winter games in Erzurum, Turkey from 2-12th March 2024. It will be the Deaflympics 100th birthday.

Due to the current lack of public support and awareness Deaf sportspersons fall out of the remit for Government funding. Team selected, and in training, we have six weeks to raise sponsorship.
With this in mind we wanted to reach out to enquire whether it could be something you could get onboard with? Below you will find the specifics regarding the sponsoring figures the team are trying to raise and what advertising and PR the sponsor will receive in exchange etc.
Failing sponsorship the players are looking to raise individual funding (£2500 each) and I will forward that on accordingly. If you are able to share with your contacts, feel you can contribute or can offer any ideas to help achieve our aim please do get in touch.
