OUR STORY

 

Established in 2006, Columbus Futsal was born on concrete. What originally started as a street soccer pick-up group evolved into the organization we are today. Highly influenced by entrepreneurial immigrant parents and grandparents, culture and passion thrives throughout the club. Year after year, pick-up games still remain as our favorite way to be involved with the community and share the sport we love. 

 

We continue to grow focused on integrity, impact and inspiration. Our programs are built on principles to take you from first kick to first team. From a four-year-old showing up to their first Start Smart Futsal class to suiting up for the US National Team, each athlete has a unique pathway to develop both on and off the court. 

 

By pioneering futsal in this opportunity city, we have forever changed the scene for both athletes and sports enthusiasts for generations to come.


Simply put, we “Play How the World Plays!
