Futsal Club

Sports Development

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.

The name comes from the Portuguese Futebol de sal√£o, which can be translated as "indoor soccer". The Laws of the game are set by FIFA & UEFA associations.

Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of 5-aside football, the games are played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size 4 ball with a reduced bounce.It is played between touchlines (walls or boards are not used) and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height.

Games are 20 minutes per half, played to a stopping clock (similar to basketball) with time-outs permitted. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, quick thinking, creativity and technique, as well as ball control and passing in small spaces and under pressure.

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi, Fabregas amongst many others have played Futsal to develop their skills. Southampton University Futsal Club will participate and compete, for the first time since its establishment, in BUCS 2014/2015 Western 1A League and Trophy.

The club will also organise weekly friendly matches / Intra-tournaments for its regular members. If you interested in playing Futsal at any level please get in touch with us and join the club in order to enjoy this wonderful sport and have fun creatively during your studies at the University of Southampton..
