In the following article we will try to cover most of the important information for the upcoming season. The dates and times for each competition below are what we have planned, however they aren’t set in stone. If for example, there are far more teams than expected in a division, then game times may need to be shuffled around.
This season, player registration fees will be $90 across the board and the $10 per player per game match fee will remain as is.

New Senior Divisions
Ipswich Futsal Premier League
For each summer season onwards, the Ipswich Futsal Premier League will replace Senior A as the top senior opens division. The Ipswich Futsal Premier League (IFPL) will be the highest senior opens division, with the competition intended for high level futsal teams looking to pit themselves against the best teams Ipswich Futsal has to offer. The IFPL will have the feel of a high level tournament as well, with each game played on international courts with two referees, prize money, and more! Team nominations are not yet open for the Ipswich Futsal Premier League, with more information to be announced in the coming week or two!
Kicks and Giggles
This season, Kicks and Giggles will run for the very first time, a non-competitive senior competition aimed either at lower level teams that may just be starting out at futsal, or at teams who only want to have a fun time and not play for points. With music playing loud and a laid back atmosphere, a fun time is sure to be had by all, win or lose!
For the first time ever, summer season will now start in September. For our competitive competitions, this will take the form of friendly/grading games, with the season proper starting in the first week of October as usual. The idea behind starting the season earlier is to give those who register and nominate early the opportunity to start playing as soon as possible.
|Competitions||Friendly/Grading Games||Season Proper|
|Ipswich Futsal Premier League||No grading games||Monday October 3|
|Senior B||Monday September 5||Monday October 3|
|U10/11||Monday September 5|
|Senior C, U12/13||Tuesday September 6||Tuesday October 4|
|Youth, U14/15||Thursday September 8||Thursday October 6|
|U8/9||Thursday September 8|
|Senior Womens||Friday September 9||Friday October 7|
|Kicks and Giggles||Friday September 9|
|U6/7||Saturday September 17|
If your team can’t play throughout September, don’t stress! Your team can still enter in time for the beginning of the season proper in the first week of October. And beyond that we accept team nominations through till year’s end.
Only team nominations received by Friday in the week prior will be included in the draw for the following week’s draw. For example, only teams nominations received by Friday September 3 may be included in the first week of friendly and grading games.
Potential Game Times
The following table gives a fairly good indication of the range of kick off times teams may expect each week.
|Competition||Day||Kick off Times|
|Kicks and Giggles||Friday||6:30pm-8:30pm|
|Ipswich Futsal Premier League||Monday||6:30pm-8:30pm|
Players Without A Team
Players looking for a team are to complete the individual player nomination form. We will contact you about potential team placement after the nomination form is submitted. Once we have placed you into a team, make sure to register on Play Football before your first game.
Before the first week of fixtures, we will attempt to place all individual players either in teams with openings or in a team of other individuals. Afterwards, individual players will either be placed into teams with openings or put onto a waitlist.
As a result, we strongly encourage individual players (especially those who register late) to avoid paying their registration fee online.
If there are any questions or concerns that have been left unanswered, feel free explore more of our website or send us a message and we will help you out.
