Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided soccer game that originates from South America in the 1930s. It is widely played across the world, and is the small sided football format that is officially recognized by both the USA 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 soccer competencies that can be translated into the soccer format of the game. Many of the top world class soccer players played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their development. Players of the calibre of Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Cristiano
Ronaldo to name a few all played and enjoyed Futsal in their youth.

Futsal began in Uruguay and Brazil where the large crowded cities and a shortage of playing pitches forced a soccer mad populace to play small sided games and in 1936 the first rules emerged. Futsal was the name chosen by FIFA, which is simply a combination of the Spanish words for ‘hall’ (Sala) and ‘football’ (Futbol): hence ‘Futsal’."
