Futsal has a few differences from the 5-a-side game. Below are the most notable ones:
- Played to lines - play is restarted with a "Kick-In" utilising a 4 second rule.
- Ball has reduced bounce and is size 4 (Size varies depending on age groups participating).
- Rolling substitutions.
- All players can go anywhere on the pitch including goalkeepers.
- Minimal contact with an accumulated 5 foul limit.
- Futsal operates through its FIFA Laws of the Game which encompass all of the above and more.
