The Chocolate Milk Futsal Cup (formerly known as the Michigan Futsal Factory Academy Invitational) started 4 years ago and has since grown exponentially. What started out as a small local tournament with a few futsal teams and a few club teams is now expected to be one of the biggest futsal tournaments in the midwest with over 125 teams from 4 states and 2 countries.
Drew "Ducks" Ducker, current US Futsal National Team Player, is the founder of both the Academy and the Tournament. Rob Smith, who runs East Michigan Futsal league, has played an important role in the growth of the tournament as well.
In 2017, with the support of the Ann Arbor Sports Commission, the tournament moved to Washtenaw County (Saline + Ann Arbor) in addition to being renamed the Chocolate Milk Futsal Cup in partnership with the United Dairy Industry of Michigan.
