What is Futsal?

Futsal is a modified form of soccer that is played with five players per team (one of which is a goalkeeper); and it is played on a basketball size field (typically indoors).

Flying substitution is used; substitutions are unlimited. Unlike regular soccer or some other forms of indoor soccer, Futsal is played on a hard-court surface defined by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular soccer ball.

Futsal is a self-teaching game. Players are constantly put in situations where they must pass, receive, dribble, and move, while under pressure, in a confined space.

Why Play Futsal?

Futsal is a FUN fast paced sport that will hone the key qualities of a soccer player better than any other indoor format and these benefits are transferrable to the outside game. In fact, two very important soccer components are: (1) having good technique, i.e. foot-skills; and (2) developing a creative, tactical mind, or speed of play.

  • Per US Soccer, here are the key qualities of a player and how it relates to futsal.
  • Read and understand the game and make faster decisions -improves players decision making skills with or without the ball
  •  Execute with optimal technical abilities - provides players with more touches on the ball and improves players ball control skills
  • Take initiative and be pro-active – Players are better prepared to change positions and make decisions in a split second
  • Demonstrate focus – Players are able to stay on task over time
  • Take responsibility and accountability for their own development & performance
  • Execute with optimal physical abilities – provides players more opportunities to develop fitness, endurance, flexibility, stronger ankles, etc.
Futsal is not the same sport as indoor soccer. There are some differences.
