Futsal Insights are thrilled to announce that Ian Bateman, The FA’s Futsal Coach Development Lead, will be addressing the attendees at the conference in Manchester on 2nd March. Ian will shine a light on how futsal is being used within professional football clubs and discuss The FA’s recently launched 6-year national futsal strategy.
Ian has a wealth of experience in both professional football and elite futsal including being the assistant academy manager at a Premier League Club and his current position on the England National Futsal Team coaching setup. His current responsibilities include promoting futsal coach education across professional football in the boys academy programme.
Futsal’s presence in professional football has long been talked about but little is known about what is actually taking place behind the scenes. The Futsal Insights Conference will provide the different models used at various clubs including the best practice. If you want to know what, why and how they are using futsal in football then this is your chance to find out.
How futsal is supported by the Premier League, English Football League and elite women’s game will be covered as well the cases of futsal players who have succeeded in football, such as former England futsal international and Premier League Wolves’ Max Kilman. Ian will also discuss how futsal can attract players to move in the opposite direction. If you are involved in using futsal for football development then this is a talk you must not miss out on.
With regard to the FA’s Futsal Strategy 2018-2026, Ian will inform the audience why the FA decided to formulate a national strategy for futsal for the first ever time. The man who helped write The FA's futsal coach education pathway will cover what is the next step for the strategy and how it will be put into practice. This will be a fascinating insight into a dedicated national strategy for futsal, one of very few national association worldwide to have one in place.
