History

The club was founded in 1977 by a journalist named Jose Maria Garcia. In its first two years, the club only played charity and exhibition matches but soon, in 1979, Inter Futbol Sala participated in its first futsal championship under the name of Hora XXV. Their debut was marked with incredible success as the club clinched the Primera Division title on their first attempt.

In the 1981/82 season, the club won another league title and was renamed Interviu Lloyd’s, which marked the beginning of their dominance, as the club went on to win eight consecutive Primera Division titles. In addition to eight league titles, Interviu Lloyd’s also won four Spanish Cups in what was the most successful period in the club’s history.

In 1989, the Spanish Football Federation and the Association of Soccer unified their championships, creating the LNFS. Inter Futbol Sala happened to be one of the founding members of LNFS, and in its first season in the LNFS, Inter won the league and cup double. Two years later, the club achieved their first European success, winning the Futsal European Clubs Championship. However, it took another five seasons until Inter won the Primera Division title again in 1996.

Inter experienced another title drought from 1996 to 2001, but they were back with a bang for 2001/02 and the subsequent seasons as the club clinched four consecutive league titles and became one of the dominant teams at the national level. Likewise, their second most successful domestic spell was from 2013 to 2018 – during that period, Inter won five Primera Division titles in a row.

Current Team

The current team continues to play in four official competitions, including the Primera Division, the Copa del Rey, the Supercopa de Espana, and the Futsal Champions League.

The 17-member squad comprises the following players:
