What is Futsal?
Futsal is a fast-paced, 5-a-side sport that is used as a development tool in many professional football academies around the world. Playing futsal enhances players' technical ability, in-game decision-making, tactical awareness and physical fitness. Footballers such as Pelé, Messi, Xavi and Iniesta, amongst so many other world-class players, all played futsal in their youth.
"When I was a young boy in Argentina, I played futsal in the street and in a club. It was great fun and helped me to become the player I am today." - Lionel Messi

"In futsal, you see whether a player is really talented. You notice the small details in quality, class and tactical understanding"
"I love futsal, I enjoy it a lot. I love their skill with the ball, the intensity of the moves, the side steps, the blocks, the passing." - Andres Iniesta
