MLF EXPANSION CREATING A DOMESTIC AND GLOBAL MARK.

Expansion and Membership

Since 2012 Major League Futsal USA is committed to growing the sport of futsal in the United States in a sustainable way. The 2018 expansion plan is to grow strategically by strengthening our existing conferences and expanding the national footprint of the Major League Futsal USA pyramid, into new areas of the country that does not currently have high level futsal.  

Today we have a global presence within the futsal community, with domestic and global networks coming online everyday.  We are working with the futsal communities at a great pace with a bullish mentality, to cover not only our local market but to leave a global footprint.   As members of the North American Futsal Federation, we have established ourselves as the premier league for North America. 

The MLF brand is unmistakable and is recognized everywhere, our brand makes a powerful statement whenever it is used, and invokes many feelings of power, sustainability, confidence, and longevity.  We are proud of the work we have done, but we are not done yet. There is still much work to be done and with your help we can accomplish the goals and visions of the MLF.

Which is to win the Futsal World Cup..
