Futsal

Futsal is FIFA's official indoor game.

It is small sided (5v5), played on a smaller pitch (roughly basketball court sized) and with a smaller ball.

Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer endorsed by FIFA. It earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball sized court with a smaller, heavier low bounce ball. Futsal is played with touchline boundaries and without walls.

This is the game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play to refine and maintain their control skills and touch. It is superior to walled soccer in terms of developing better skills and technique. In traditional American walled soccer, players regularly whack the ball (and sometimes their bodies) against the boards which promotes improper technique and too often rewards errant play. In futsal, players are constantly reminded to play the same quality control game that is required for success in the outdoor game.

Why FUTSAL?

  • Better Skills Development - Futsal promotes quality touches
  • Safer - Futsal eliminates the injuries associated with wall collisions
  • Less Expensive - Futsal makes quality soccer more affordable
