Futsal is the only form of  indoor 5 a-side football approved by FIFA, UEFA and recently adopted by The FA. It is really easy to play and it is the closest you come to playing conventional 11 a-side football but indoors.

10 Reasons to Play Futsal

Futsal is easy to play. It’s just like playing normal 11-a-side football, but indoors

World class teams like Brazil, Spain and Portugal with world class players like Ronaldo, Robinho, Kaka and Fabregas have developed by playing Futsal. Here are ten simple reasons why you should play Futsal – join the global revolution now!

1. Rewards
Futsal develops the same basic technique, 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 which will increase a player’s ball competency.

3. Ball control
With limited space, defined touchlines and constant opponent pressure, improved ball control technique and skills are required.

4. Speed of play
Constant opponent pressure and a 4 second restart law means players must learn to play and think fast, which develops intelligent players.

5. Support play
Without a wall or rebound boards to rely on in order to escape from tight situations, you must make supporting runs when team mates have the ball.

6.Continuity of play
Action is continuous and physically demanding, so players must continue the play instead of stopping and watching, which in turn develops physical conditioning.

7. Knowledge
With four on-court players, plus a goalkeeper that can join in the play, all the basic components of the outdoor game are present. As the action is non-stop, players are able to develop an improved technical understanding of futsal very quickly.

8. Finishing
The goal and penalty area assist the goalkeeper in narrowing the angle, which means players must learn to shoot accurately and deceive the goalkeeper instead of just relying on power alone.

9. Play well, play fair
The laws of the game of futsal, encourage playing skilfully and punish physical contact fouls. Gameplay also encourages respect for all players and officials.

10. Fun!
Futsal is a fast-paced, fun, skill-oriented game that tests your abilities at whatever level, whilst developing all-round individual technique.
