What Is Futsal?

Futsal is a five-a-side game, played on a flat court, usually indoors, with goals similar to those used in hockey, while the ball is size four, with a reduced bounce. It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height. Games are 20 minutes per half, played to a stopping clock (similar to basketball) with time-outs permitted.

Futsal is unlike the version of small-sided football played in England, due to the absence of rebound boards and rules that encourage skillful, creative play more than the physical contact and rough and tumble of regular five-a-side.

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced football game which is widely played across the world and is excellent for developing players to transfer their learned skills into eleven-a-side football.
