FUTSAL

WHAT IS FUTSAL?

Futsal is the only FIFA and NZ Football approved version of five-aside football and the world’s fastest growing indoor sport.

The name futsal is derived from the Portuguese words futebol (football) and sala (hall).

Futsal is a small-sided – 5v5 – 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.

NZF Futsal has been designed to complement New Zealand Football’s existing programmes and promote and improve participation in football in New Zealand.
