ACUE are pleased to be announced as the headline sponsor for the first ever BT Sport broadcast of The FA National Futsal Series with the Summer Showdown Grand Finals to be played on BT Sport 1 (and YouTube) from 0900-1630 on Sunday 27th June.
The Summer Showdown is a one-off cup competition played over 6 weeks to decide who will be nominated for the UEFA Futsal Champions League. If you’re new to the sport, futsal is the only format of small-sided football formally recognised by FIFA. The ball is smaller and more dense than a football, which encourages fast end-to-end action that develops technique and skill.
With ACUE’s philosophy being on creating and nurturing high performing teams, being an equal opportunities employer and with an entrepreneurial spirit that has helped us grow from an Idea in 2020 to a team of 30+ employees, we are delighted to have partnered with the equally ambitious and ground-breaking Futsal sport.
The The FA National Futsal Series’ aim is to identify and nurture the next generation of Footballers and Futsal Players with a focus on rich technical abilities that will rival the trickery and skills of Brazil, Spain and Portugal. Importantly professional Futsal places equality at the heart of what they do with Men and Women’s teams having an equal platform to showcase their abilities.
This weekend’s finals are the first prime time broadcast and next season, BT will continue their coverage of the UEFA Futsal Champions League in addition to their other football rights including the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League.
Carl Bruiners, Co-Founder of ACUE said
“As a keen supporter of Futsal over the past few years, it has been fantastic to see how far the sport has come and this weekend is going to be so exciting as it finally reaches the main stage. Equally exciting, is the fact that ACUE is supporting such a great sport, especially at a time when many of us haven’t had the opportunity over the past 18 months to socialise, exercise and have fun, so BT Sport showcasing this new ambitious sports is going to be great for people of all ages and particularly the future generations.”
Finally, to celebrate this momentous occasion for ACUE, Futsal and our client BT, our agile delivery team (special thanks to Delia Marcu), have created our Futsal Themed Retro Template in Mural, check it out:
