Futsal

Futsal is the only indoor version of soccer recognized by the international governing body of soccer, FIFA. It is a 5-aside (5v5) game, played on a smooth court surface with an age specific futsal (low bounce) ball. These factors allow each player to make technical and tactical decisions, and promote physical and social elements associated with soccer. This fast paced, skillful game can be used as a great development tool for soccer players of all ages.

As and when more information is available for specific Futsal Festivals, information packages will be posted here.
