What is futsal?

Futsal is a variant of association football that is played on a smaller pitch and mainly played indoors. Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. In the Danish regulations you are allowed to have 7 substitutes and unlimited substitutions during the match is permitted. The match is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; no walls or boards are used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
