What is Futsal?

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided soccer game that originates from South America in the 1930s. The game is played between two teams of five players on each side. One of the five players is a goalkeeper and can be very active on the field.

Futsal is played on a hard court surface with a smaller ball that has less bounce than a regular ball. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ball control as well as developing awareness and speed of play. These core skills can easily be enhanced and developed through Futsal and implemented into the more traditional 11v11 format.

Many of the top world class soccer players played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their development. Players such as Pele, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo to name a few all played and enjoyed Futsal in their youth.
