Derbyshire County FA are supporting the development of Futsal and are working with key partners to support the delivery of the sport.

Futsal is FIFA and UEFAs recognised format of 5-a-side football and in recent years has been embraced by The Football Association. FIFA claim that it is the fastest growing indoor sport in the world, and is immensely popular outside of the UK.  Futsal has played an important role in the technical development of some of the world’s leading football players; Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Kaka, Xavi, Ronaldinho to name just a few all played Futsal as they grew up and developed into world beaters. The FA are keen to harness the benefits of this game and introduce it to benefit the technical development of English  players. Futsal is being played widely in schools, colleges and universities across the country, and The FA has established an adult National Futsal League and an England senior men’s Futsal team that plays in European and World Cups.

Futsal is a format of 5-a-side football that is played indoors with a smaller, heavier ball. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. The number of differences to our traditional version of small sided football, such as the absence of rebound boards and amendments in the laws help to encourage and foster skilful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of English five-a-side.
