The US Futsal National team represents the United States at international competitions. It is governed by US Soccer and affiliated with CONCACAF. The U.S. Futsal Federation was founded in 1981 and the first international futsal match played by the U.S. National Futsal Team was in May 1984. The first international futsal match in the United States was held in December, 1985.
The U.S. golden age of futsal was the late 1980s and early 1990s when the team placed third at 1989 FIFA Futsal World Championship and was runner-up at 1992 FIFA Futsal World Championship. In recent years the program has suffered and the COVID-19 pandemic didn't help.
Today U.S. Futsal National Team head coach Dusan Jakica led the US Futsal National team back to the FIFA Futsal World Cup for the first time since 2008.
“When you’re surrounded with a lot of talented kids, you must push yourself over the edge, you must give your maximum,” Jakica said of his early days with the club. “Especially there, where it is very competitive and the soccer culture is very high. Kids there don’t like to lose even in their own backyards.”
