Futsal “5-a-side” is a fun, exciting, fast-paced small sided soccer game that is played by thousands of adults and children across the world.

While it is considered a sport in its own right, Futsal does not compete with outdoor soccer but serves to support it by developing skills that will make children better players, both on the soccer field and the futsal court.

Futsal is the only internationally recognized indoor game of F.I.F.A. (Federation International de Futbol Association).

  • Small numbers = more touches on the ball
  • Develops skill and creativity on the ball (more 1 versus 1 situations)
  • Creates awareness of time and space with movement off the ball
  • Promotes good ball control (the ball has less bounce and stays in play longer)
  • Low physical contact resulting in less injuries
  • Futsal is exciting and FUN!

Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with small sized goals and a size 4 ball 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 Rules

There are a number of differences to our traditional version of indoor soccer, but the dominant elements are the absence of walls and amendments in the laws that encourage and foster skillful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of indoor soccer.
