Futsal is played mostly indoors on a hard court, smooth surface about the size of a basketball court. Futsal uses a ball that is smaller and heavier than a regular soccer ball with less bounce. Each team has 5 five players.
The smooth surface, the tight space, and the special Futsal ball continuously put players in positions where they are under pressure from the opposing team. This forces them to play quicker, be creative, and use correct techniques for receiving, turning and passing. To keep the ball, players have to be always moving and adjusting to keep up with the speed of play.
