Futsal is the indoor type of association soccer (football) that is officially
sanctioned by FIFA (the Federation Internationale de Football Association) -
international governing body of football. It is quite a curious fact that actually the name
of "futsal" is derived from Spanish, the original expression being "futbol sala". Another
theory claims that the name of this game traces its roots to the Portuguese language,
namely the expression "futebol de salao", both of the expressions mentioned above are
translated as "football in the hall".
Futsal history began in 1930 in Uruguay and now the history is more than 75
years. One of the most famous futsal competitions is World Championship. In a futsal
match, there are two teams that consist of five players each. In every team, there is a
goalkeeper and four field players. Futsal is different from other indoor football kinds in
several ways. The most important distinction is that the playing field has lines which
delimit it, and not boards or nets.
It is an interesting fact that futsal ball is a little bit heavier than a regular football
and thus it requires better skills of ball control as well as performance of passes.
Moreover the smaller size of futsal playing field makes the game even more intense and
challenging for players. As a result they exercise their decision-making skills and
improve their reaction.
