Series Futsal Australia is for the best futsal clubs in Australia to compete for a national title. The top clubs from each of Futsal Oz’s state affiliates are invited to enter, with a minimum of 12 teams fighting for the crown.
The Futsal Oz affiliate competitions are Series Futsal Victoria, the South Australian Futsal League, Western Australian State Futsal League, Brisbane Futsal League and the Far North Coast NSW.
The tournaments are held twice a year for men (April and September) and once a year for women (April only) and typically run over a three-day period.
The competition, for both mens and women, are played for a cup – regarded as the most prestigious prize in the extensive Futsal Oz trophy cabinet.
Series Futsal Australia was first held in April 2012 and was originally called the Futsal Oz Australian Futsal League (FAFL).
The first tournament was played for mens clubs from around Australia, with teams representing all five Australian mainland states.
In the mens division, Victorian club Pascoe Vale FC won the first three Series Futsal Australia titles (2012/13/14), before Sydney Magic (2015) and West Australian side Cambio Cumbre (2015/2016) won the past three.
In the womens, Sydney team Parramatta Blues dominated the first two titles, before South Brisbane (2015) and FC Richmond (2016) took home the spoils.
Each Series Futsal Australia (formerly FAFL) have been played in Melbourne at either the Brunswick or Mount Evelyn Futsal Stadiums. In 2016, the mens tournament will be played in Perth.
