The Futsal Effect
What makes countries like Brazil and Spain special when it comes to soccer is not necessarily superior facilities or clubs, but a strong culture of football and Futsal — an exciting, fast-paced small-sided soccer game.
Futsal is a format of five-a-side football that is played extensively around the world. It combines a fast pace with a small playing area, which forces players to maneuver the ball with great skill.
Futsal has created a culture of playing soccer everywhere. Futsal is the only “Official form of Indoor Soccer” as approved by FIFA and played by over 100 countries with 12 million players.
“Futsal’ is an abbreviation of the Portuguese ‘futebol de salão’ or the Spanish ‘futbol sala’,which means ‘indoor football’. It is typically played on a pitch similar to the size of a basketball or netball court. A futsal ball is also smaller and heavier than the outdoor football and has a reduced bounce.
This forces a player to use their skill rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. As a small-sided game, players are constantly placed in situations where they have to receive the ball and play under pressure or in confined spaces.
For developing youth players, nothing is more important than regular practice and repetition which makes Futsal ideal. Kids play for fun and being able to play often is what helps them to develop the skills they need.
