What is Futsal?

Futsal is played professionally in countries including Spain and Brazil. The 5-a-side format places the emphasis firmly on developing player technique and skill. Played with a heavier ball it promotes awareness and quick decision making. Practise passing and movement is a key element to the game with players such as Lionel Messi and Cristinao Ronaldo having played Futsal as youngsters. The continued growth and success of Futsal in England has seen it become an intrinsic part of professional Academy programmes. Futsal will also feature in the 2016 Olympics.
