  5. What is Futsal?

    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.
