Rules & Format

Updated - January 2016

The AC Brea Futsal league is an "Off-Season" league for all AC Brea players & Invited teams from friendly neighboring clubs.  The purpose of this program is to give players the opportunity to play with and against their teammates outside of the team environment.  It is a program that we want our players to be taking the lead by forming their own teams, coming up with team names and checking their standings, game times and player stats.

The league is also open to non AC Brea teams.  We welcome all outside competitive teams to compete with us.
