The play-offs, which will be played at the University of Derby on Sunday 24th and Sunday 31st March, represent an opportunity for the teams to progress to the national stages of the competition.
The four teams progressed to the regional play-offs after emerging victorious from the county play-offs between teams from the Derby Futsal League and Chesterfield Futsal League, which took place in February.
The county winners who are progressing to the regional play-offs are listed below.
U10s Boys – Chesterfield Town
U12s Boys – Allestree Benfica

U16s Boys – Borrowash Victoria
Sunday 24th March will see the U16 and U14 teams competing, with the U12 and U10 teams playing on Sunday 31st, with the finals on the 24th taking place prior to and after the National League fixture between Derby Futsal Club and Liverpool Futsal Club.
The winners will progress to the semi-finals of the national tournament which will take place on Saturday 13th April at PlayFootball, in Birmingham.
The Derbyshire County FA wish all four teams the best of luck.
