Futsal is FIFA’s official indoor game. It is a sport that is a derivative of soccer and played with five-person teams on a basketball court, with no walls and a smaller (size 3–4) low-bounce ball. Very popular in Brazil, it was the game that Ronaldinho, Zico, Ronaldo and Rivelino grew up on. It’s played with amazing speed and breathtaking footwork, yet it is very simple and easily picked up and enjoyed by kids and coaches.
What are the main differences between soccer and Futsal?
Aside from the smaller court and fewer players, the goals are smaller as well (2 meters x 3 meters). In addition, unlimited substitution is allowed during the game. Roster size is recommended between 8–10 and the maximum is 12. A player may only be rostered on one team.
Thank you for your participation & Good Luck!
