LOVE FOOTBALL? TRY FUTSAL!

In our County we have thriving Futsal Leagues that provide this popular format for a variety of age groups.

Futsal is the format of Small Sided Football that is recognised and supported by FIFA and UEFA. There is a UEFA Futsal Cup for clubs, and UEFA Futsal Championships and FIFA World Championship for national teams.

 

Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with 3m x 2m 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. There are a number of differences to our traditional version of small sided football, but the dominant elements are 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.

 

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world. 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 a player's technique, movement, tactical awareness and fitness. as a result, Futsal can provide 6x times more touches than the 11v11 format but the learning of and from Futsal can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

 

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development. Players of the calibre of Pele,Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi to name but a few of the South American legends all played and enjoyed Futsal. But Futsal has not just helped produce South American football stars, on the European stage Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi, Fabregas amongst many others have played Futsal to develop their skills.
