What is Futsal?
Futsal is a derivative of indoor soccer, and it is played with five-man teams (4v4 and a goal keeper) on a basketball style court with no walls, a smaller, low-bouncing ball and 7’x10’ goals. Many of the top soccer players in the world, including Pele, Messi, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Marta, Iniesta, Xavi, Neymar and many others, credit futsal as playing an essential role in their soccer development.
“Futsal is the best option for player development”
“As a little boy in Argentina, I played Futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today.”
-Lionel Messi, FIFA World Footballer of the Year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012
