Lexington, KY (October 30, 2020) – Commonwealth Soccer Club and Kings Hammer Bluegrass are partnering up to offer quality futsal programming in the Lexington area over the next 4 months. Both clubs have agreed to work together to offer futsal play for U9 – U19 players in 2 six-game sessions within the Lexington Futsal League, as well as the Volta Cup Lexington, a futsal tournament to be held January 1-3, 2021. Futsal session I will run from November 7 – December 19, 2020, Futsal session II from January 9 – February 13, 2021. Matches will feature 5v5 including GKs played under futsal regulations.
Building off Commonwealth Soccer Club’s existing futsal league format, one which saw 85 teams compete last winter over 2 sessions, the Lexington Futsal League will be the premier futsal offering in the Lexington area. The league will continue to be run on hardwood floor basketball courts located at the Lexington Ice Center on various Saturdays from November through February.

Kings Hammer teams have regular futsal training throughout the winter season during the week and this new partnership will allow them to get futsal games over the weekend”, says Daniel Ensley, Kings Hammer Bluegrass General Manager and Technical Director. Ensley continues, “we are very excited to work with Commonwealth SC in this combined futsal endeavor. We know we share similar goals and objectives for our players and families. We look forward to these new positive experiences.”
Commonwealth SC President, Todd Wetzel comments, “we are pleased to continue offering futsal this year as a way for the Lexington and surrounding community to continue the game they love during the winter months. Futsal is a great tool for increasing skills and attacking abilities.” Wetzel continues, “we are excited to partner with Kings Hammer! Together we will continue to offer a high-quality, competitive soccer league and with Kings Hammer’s leadership, add the Volta Cup to our offering.”
Volta Cup Lexington will provide avid futsal players a chance to compete in a local futsal tournament event between the 2 six-game sessions.
