Fun Futsal Centres

aff-girls-futsal-champs-510Futsal is the only FIFA and NZ Football approved version of five-aside football and the world’s fastest growing indoor sport and there are various opportunities to be involved in Auckland.

The name Futsal is derived from the Portuguese words futebol (football) and sala (hall). Futsal is a small-sided game played with a smaller (size 3 or 4) low bounce ball, on a basketball sized court without rebound walls or nets.

It is a game which combines fun, creativity, speed, technique, teamwork and quick thinking. With millions of players worldwide, Futsal is a fantastic game in its own right, with professional leagues throughout Europe, South America and Asia and a FIFA Futsal World Cup every four years.

Futsal also produces technically excellent players and as such is an invaluable tool for football development. Futsal actively promotes: individual ball skills, close control and dribbling, creativity and improvisation, maintenance of ball possession, one-touch passing (along the ground) accurate shooting, and teamwork and off the ball movement.

World superstars such as Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Cesc Fabregas and Lionel Messi have all acknowledged the role Futsal has played in their football development.
