Ever wondered where celebrated soccer players such as Pele, Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi learned their fancy footwork skills?
Master of everything
All of them played futsal when they were younger! They credit the game with helping them master the techniques they still use to this day.
You'll get a kick out of it
If you love soccer and haven't yet had a go at futsal you're in for a treat!
A game of two halves
While futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, indoor football game in its own right, it's also helps you develop an arsenal of skills that will make you a better player both on the football pitch and the futsal court.
Keep your eye on the ball
Because it's a game played at breakneck speed, futsal improves player's decision-making skills under pressure and teaches them to manipulate the ball in tight spots.
Touch and go
It also encourages players to be creative and think outside the box. Due to the smaller size of the court, the average futsal player will have 600 per cent more touches on the ball than a soccer player. This helps hone their ball-handling skills and allows them to try crazy moves they would never attempt on the soccer field.
Get the ball rolling
If you want to become more agile, faster, stronger, and have better overall balance, give futsal a go and you'll soon be passing, dribbling, turning, shielding and shooting like the pros in no time at all.
