Futsal Five A-Side Australia (FFAA) was formed in September 2006. After being part of several soccer federations, David Birch thought that it was time to branch out and create a new federation that kept playing costs to a minimum but also was able to offer its members the chance to play on the national and international scene. Coniston Indoor Soccer centre, the oldest and most respected centre on the South Coast was the first centre to join this new federation. Willoughby Leisure centre in Sydney followed, as did a centre from Swan Hill, Victoria. This all happened in the first year of operation. Seasons 2006 and 2007 have seen team and player numbers grow with many exciting games played at both the Coniston and Willoughby centres. 2008 started well with Coniston and Willoughby centres both nearing their playing capacity for teams playing Juniors, Men's, Ladies, Mixed and Over 35's.
