Try Something New - Try Futsal!

If you’re keen to play football but the 11-a-side game isn’t for you, why not start playing Futsal with Leicestershire FA?

We’re pleased to announce that we are launching several new Futsal Leagues and Tournaments for both men and women to get involved in.

Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey 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.

Details of our upcoming Leagues and Tournaments are as follows:
