10 Reasons every footballer should play futsal

 

1. SKILL DEVELOPER

The game demands quick reflexes, fast thinking, and pinpoint passing. Futsal uses a smaller, heavier, low bounce ball. Ground control and first touch are essential to success in the game.

With limited space, an out of bounds and constant opponent pressure, improved ball control skills and technique are required.

3. BALL CONTROL

4. SUPPORT OF PLAY

Without a wall or rebound boards to rely on in order to escape from tight situations, you must make supporting runs when teammates have the ball.

5. SPEED OF PLAY

With limited space, constant opponent pressure and a 4 second restart rule players learn to play and think fast.

6. MORE TECHNICAL

  Messi himself fondly recollects his time at the Rosario based club; “ as a little boy in Argentina, I played futsal on the streets and for my club…it really helped me become who I am today”.
