About Futsal

What is Futsal?

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, small-sided football game that originates from South America in the 1930s. It is widely played across the world and is the small-sided football format that is officially recognized 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.

Ever heard of Messi or Ronaldinho or Neymar or Cristiano Ronaldo? These are some of the very best soccer players in the world who credit futsal as a huge part of their development and the reason why they became the player they are today.

"If it wasn't for Futsal, I would defiantly not be the player I am today" - Ronaldo

"My technique and my dribbling skills came from playing Futsal! A lot of moves I make originate from Futsal." - Ronaldinho

"As a little boy in Argentina, I played Futsal in the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun and it really helped me become who I am today" - Messi

Why Play Futsal?


The average player touches the ball 210% more often in Futsal than indoor soccer with walls and 500% more than regular outdoor games.

Confidence on the ball, receiving a pass under pressure, decision-making in 1v1 situations and ball retention are all important fundamental skills that we look to develop in young football players that are practiced regularly within a game environment in Futsal.
