Project fill the pavilion gets underway with the help of the Red Faction


Middlesbrough Futsal Club host Sheffield FC in The FA Futsal League North on Sunday 6th March at Thornaby Pavilion, kick off 1:30pm and Boro are expecting a record crowd with the help of Boro supporters, Red Faction.


Boro haven’t had the best opening half of the season and need a vast improvement if they are to move up the table and challenge for a playoff spot, though that is very unlikely admits manager Damon Shaw.


“We are all but out of it. I’ve challenged the players to show a big improvement over the second half of the season.  There’s still plenty to play for and while playoffs may just be out of our reach we want to show we are still one of the top teams.  The players are young and are gaining experience every match and a couple of wins and we can start to think about carrying on that good run,” said Shaw.


Boro’s supporters are planning to attend Sunday’s match in their numbers and the atmosphere will no doubt be the best seen at an English Futsal fixture.  The Red Faction have already travelled away to Manchester and Sheffield, but this weekend’s match is the first time they will have been at home and they have plans to make Thornaby Pavilion a fortress for Boro Futsal.


Fan spokesperson Craig Broadbent is urging his fellow Boro fans to come along and make some noise.


“As Boro supporters we feel it's right to support all things Boro and so we have taken on supporting the futsal and we are loving every minute of it. The games are cheap and the players are approachable - it's a breath of fresh air.  We hope to make the numbers as huge as possible to come and support our lads!”


Entry is only £1 and kickoff is at 1:30pm on Sunday 6th March. Doors open at 12:30pm. Parking is free at Thornaby Town centre.
