Futsal is the only indoor game sanctioned by FIFA. If skills development is important, Futsal is recognized as clearly the best form of indoor soccer. But that’s not the only reason.

  1. Better Skills Development – Futsal promotes quality touches
  2. Safer – Futsal eliminates the injuries associated with wall collisions
  3. Less Expensive – Futsal makes quality soccer more affordable

Who says Futsal is Better?

FIFA says futsal is better. And the Brazilians and Spanish are among the many nations that swear by it. Pele, Ronaldinho, Marta, Iniesta & Xavi all credit futsal for much of their skill development. And more recently, U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Soccer Development Academy are mandating futsal as a component of their player development initiative. Once you experience futsal, you will see the reasons.
