619 FUTSAL HISTORY

HISTORY

619 Futsal started the futsal revolution in San Diego! 619 Futsal is the only United States Youth Futsal sanctioned futsal league in San Diego.


619 Futsal was established in 2011 and is the largest futsal league in San Diego. Drawing players from all regions of the County, 619 Futsal started the futsal revolution in Southern California. We provide a forum for players to learn the game of futsal in a non-competitive environment. Our focus is on player development, skills and team work; not trophies! 


Our league has an average of 200 teams a year, 100 players for our Regional I.D. Camp and we host 2 or 3 other camps and special events during the year with varying numbers of attendance and 40 – 60 teams for our tournament. 


We have players, families and coaches attending futsal on a weekly basis and with this level of participation your company will get exposure to our patrons, both at our facilities and also through our website, email, and social media outlets. 


On average, we have over 2000 players participating in our leagues, with another 500+ spectators (mainly parents and coaches) supporting those players on a weekly basis. 


In June 2018, 619 Futsal was given USYF Academy status and is the only USYF Futsal Academy in Southern California.

SEAN BOWERS, Founder

Sean Bowers, Founder of 619Futsal, was a member of the U.S. National Futsal Team from 1995-2004.  Sean is the most capped player in US Soccer history earning 36 international caps. He was the team captain of the US squad from 1998-2004. After a long career as a professional soccer player, Sean now serves as the General Manager for the San Diego Sockers. 


As a professional player, Sean recognized the benefits that playing futsal brought to his abilities on the soccer field. When he retired from professional soccer, Sean had a desire to put more emphasis of developing our local youth soccer players. Most young players in South America and Europe are required to play futsal; which is why their skills and talents are so advanced.
