WHAT IS FUTSAL?
Futsal is derived from the portuguese words “Futebol en Salao”, meaning hall soccer. Futsal was invented in Uruguay but like soccer, perfected in Brazil. The game is 5v5 including goalkeepers. There are no walls to keep the ball in play. The court is a wooden basketball court with painted futsal boundaries. The floor is hard, fast and area is small. The ball is smaller, size 2.5 U12 and under or size 4 for U13+, heavier and low bounce in order to keep it on the ground. This forces players to think fast and encourages the use of strong passing and dribbling skills. Also, creating an exciting opportunity for developing ball control, movement and many 1v1 situations.
Futsal is the only FIFA approved version of indoor soccer.
