Futsal's coming home...
Soccer AM is going to bring you the sensational skills of The Football League Trust Futsal League in a regular feature throughout this season.
We're going behind the scenes with the students involved in this exciting programme and we'll bring you highlights of the 2013/14 league and cup competition, kicking off on September 25.
Clubs compete in regional divisions every Wednesday, between September and June, producing some passionate derby clashes such as Wolves v West Brom in the Black Country or Southampton v Portsmouth on the South Coast.
Last season saw debutants, Leeds United crowned League 1 National Champions, as they defeated 2012 winners Reading in the final.
The Yorkshire youngsters will be the team to beat this year - but this time they'll have competition from more than 50 Football League and Premier League clubs.
