What is Futsal?
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.
The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.
Futsal is the only version of indoor soccer sanctioned by FIFA (the world governing body of soccer). It is fast, challenges players, forces players to be creative and become more skillful. Just look at 'Futsal Facts' below…
Futsal Fact #1 - All the world's greatest players grew up playing futsal; now is that just a coincidence?
Futsal Fact #2 - All of the top clubs in the world (Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United...want me to continue) have their youth players playing futsal! Maybe just another coincidence?
Futsal Fact #3 - In a recent study it was observed that during games, Futsal players touch the ball 210% more than players playing traditional US indoor arena soccer.
Futsal Fact #4 - Ball Control - With limited space, boundary restrictions, and constant opponent pressure improved ball control skills and technique are required.
Futsal Fact #5 - With no wall to help them out, players must move and support each other just like in outdoor soccer. This develops more tactically aware players, whose skills can be transferred to the outdoor game.
