What exactly is Futsal?
Futsal is one of the most popular soccer variations in the world of soccer; and many believe it is vital to the development of players
Futsal is an indoor version of soccer. Futsal is played with a size 3 or size 4 ball, which is slightly heavier and smaller than the size 5 ball typically used. Players fight to keep the ball from crossing the touch line and you’ll immediately begin to see how futsal develops skill, control, and technique. A small field with lines puts players constantly under pressure from other players and out-of-play boundaries. Players must learn to settle the ball rapidly, cut sharply, shield effectively, pass quickly and move into space.
Futsal is supported by FIFA
FIFA says Futsal is better. The Brazilians are among the many nations that swear by it. Pele, Ronaldo, Robinho, Romario, Zico, Adriano, Kaka and Bebeto all credit Futsal for much of their skill and technique development. All the major heads of soccer and FIFA declared that this is the way to go. Once your player experiences Futsal, the benefits will be clear.
