Official Rules

Futsal is a variant of soccer that is mainly played indoors.  It is played between two teams of five players, one of whom is the goalkeeper, and up to seven substitutes per team.  Unlike some other forms of indoor soccer, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used.  Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regulation soccer ball.  The rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.
