East Coast Heat FC was founded by Jamie Amendolia and long standing Futsalroo Peter Spathis in 2012. The club was formed to give players who truly love futsal the opportunity to play in competitively.
The club’s goals are to promote the development of futsal as a leading sport and facilitate the creation of a professional league in Australia, to employ leading coaching techniques and approaches so Australian players can compete at an AFC level, and provide a platform to develop talented players so they may obtain national team selection.
East Coast Heat finished second in their inaugural season in the F-League, a result it emulated again in 2014.
For 2015 East Coast Heat returned to the F-League stronger than ever and for the first time adding a women’s team.
The club has a special emphasis on the development of young players, and consistently fielding the youngest squad in the 2014 F-League. This approach not only delivered results on the court, but also saw the call up of young players Clayton Musumeci, Sam Perre and Jordan Guerreiro into the national team.
