Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised 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.
Here is a promo video from the Euros in 2014 which will give you an idea about the sport.
There are a number of differences to the traditional version of small sided football that you might play at Soccersixes or Powerleague, with the dominant elements being the absence of rebound boards and amendments in the laws that encourage and foster skilful, creative play, above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of English five-a-side.
The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. Find out what the FA is saying about Futsal by clicking here.
