In the final addition to a stellar line-up for the Futsal Insights Conference 2019 Richard Moore of Sheffield Hallam University's Sports Industry Research Centre will provide a workshop on how to access government funding.
Richard will discuss futsal's huge potential to increase participation in the 'least active' groups of society due to the nature of the sport. This will be a strategic priority for government funding in the future and offers the opportunity to unlock funding, grow the sport locally and increase the profile of the sport.
Richard has experience in this area where he is currently working on a project for the Department of Health and Social Care looking at how to encourage the least active pupils to participate in physical activity. His previous work includes monitoring and evaluation of over ten national sport programmes for organisations including the Rugby Football Union, Youth Sport Trust and Sport England.
He has also carried out research into futsal having published four papers on the sport including the developmental relationship between futsal and football and futsal participation in England.
His history in the sport includes founding Sheffield FC Futsal where he was previously a player, coach and club manager. Further he is the owner of GingaSports.com and GFutsal which was the first to offer age-specific futsal balls in the UK.
