Our Story

Futsal4Kids started in the UK in 2012. Martin Nikolov arrived in London in 2003 from Bulgaria. Back in his country street football was very popular due to the lifestyle and freedom children have. Once he finished University his number one priority was to bring Futsal to children in the UK and what better place to open a Futsal club than England. He had a plan in place from day one when he stepped into the country on how to run his own sports club for children.

With a successful career as a Physical Education Teacher in London it was clear he had to take his managing and coaching skills and open his own sports house.

Martin’s focus was on building a club where children can express themselves, improve technically and last but not least learn how to win and lose.

With more than 250 children playing Futsal for Futsal4Kids we are now the biggest and most successful indoor football academy in Essex and East London. Our children play competitive Futsal matches on weekly basis. Futsal4Kids is now acting as an organiser and league provider where teams from Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Romford and Hornchurch compete in a Futsal league on weekly basis.

Futsal's Impact on Football Technique

There's a significant correlation between playing futsal and elevating football technique. The confined space of the futsal court demands quick thinking, precise ball control, and strategic decision-making. As a result, players notice a remarkable improvement in their overall football skills, setting the stage for success on the larger football pitch.
