Futsal is the only format of indoor soccer that is recognized and supported by FIFA. Futsal began in the South American country of Uruguay in 1930. Futsal grew rapidly and became very popular in Brazil where the large crowded cities and shortage of playing pitches forced a football-mad populace to play small-sided football. Skills and techniques honed in futsal soon began to become apparent in the performance of Brazil’s national team – Pele, Neymar and Zico all played the game at some time in their development. Players like Messi, Ronaldo, Ronaldihno and many more top soccer players dedicate their success due to futsal. Futsal was the name chosen by FIFA for the only version of 5-a-side football that it supports. The name simply combines the Spanish words for hall (“sala”) and football (“futbol”) into “futsal”. The game is normally played on a flat indoor court service pitch with handball-sized goals and a size 4 ball with reduced bounce. Futsal players are constantly placed in situations where they must receive or play while under pressure or in confined spaces. As a game it therefore places considerable demand on technique, movement, tactical awareness and fitness. The differences from versions of indoor football played predominantly in Northern Europe are the absence of rebound boards and some slight amendments in the laws that promote skillful, creative play above physical contact.
