An Ely Futsal team which was only set up five months ago has already made it to Wembley.

Ely Dragons Futsal Club made it through 5-a-side regional qualifications and will compete at the home of British football on Saturday.

Futsal is a fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.

Bartosz Rohloff, Ely Dragons founder, encouraged more people to give Futsal a try.

He said: “It is a beautiful game. All the world’s greatest players, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, started out playing Futsal and say they would not have been so good without it.”
