Why Play Futsal?

(Source: US Futsal) 

  1. Rewards | FIFA's Futsal rewards the same basic skills, tactics and knowledge of the game as the 11v11 outdoor game.
  2. Ball Touches | In a statistical study comparing Futsal to indoor arena soccer with walls, players touch the ball 210% more often.
  3. Ball Control | With limited space, an out of bounds and constant opponent pressure, improved ball control skills and technique are required.
  4. Speed of Play | With limited space, constant opponent pressure and a 4 second restart rule players learn to play and think fast.
  5. Mandatory Support | Without a wall as a crutch, players must make supporting runs when their teammates have the ball.
  6. Continuity of Play | Action is continuous so players are forced to continue the play instead of stopping and watching.
  7. Knowledge | With four court players and all the basic options of the outdoor game in non-stop action mode, players' understanding of the game is enhanced.
  8. Framing the Goal | The goal and Penalty Area are a perfect size for narrowing the angle so teams learn to frame the goal to score goals.
  9. Encouraged Learning | FIFA's Laws Of The Game of Futsal, encourage playing a skilled game by punishing all physical contact fouls.
  10. Fun | Players enjoy the challenge of playing a fast-paced-fun-skill-oriented game that test their abilities.
