Heartland Futsal is proud to have been chosen by United States Youth Futsal to host the USYF Heartland Regional Championships. There are 10 USYF Regionals across the country, providing top level Futsal teams from surrounding states to compete for the title of Regional Champion and an opportunity to qualify for the USYF National Championship in July. Selection as a host of a USYF Regional indicates that Heartland Futsal has superior facilities, experienced referees, organizational experience and most importantly, a trusted reputation that draws top teams to their Regional.
The Regional Will Draw From
- The Heartland Futsal league in the Kansas City metro area – America’s Largest Futsal League
- 7 USYF leagues in the Region
- Teams from a 7-state, 300 mile driving radius
The tournament will be hosted in some of Johnson County’s premier indoor sports and multi-use facilities.
