Futsal earned the status of FIFA’s official form of indoor soccer in the 1980s as it was recognized as a scaled-down version of outdoor soccer played indoors. It is a 5 v 5 small-sided game played on a hard surfaced, basketball-sized court with a smaller, low bounce ball. Futsal places a large emphasis on technical skills in high-pressure situations which can be translated into the outdoor game. The sport is a great skill developer as it demands quick reflexes, fast-thinking and pin-point passing.
