Futsal is growing in the UK. Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, including the goalkeeper. Teams can make unlimited substitutions and, unlike some other forms of indoor football, it is played on a hard court surface marked by lines. It is played with a smaller, harder, lower-bounce ball than football.
It's an exciting, fast-paced game of football that improves a player's improvisation, creativity, and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. It's been a fundamental part of football in South America and Latin America for decades, producing a string of talented players capable of playing the fast moving, skillful passing game teams like Brazil, Spain and Argentina are so famous for.
