United Futsal follows all FIFA rules with the exception of the distribution. According to the FIFA laws of the game, the goalkeeper can always throw the ball over half even on restart.

At United Futsal events, if the ball goes out of bounds on the end, the goalkeeper must either have the ball touch his half or a player has to touch it before it clears the halfway line in order to restart the game. In the event that no one touches it and it goes directly into the attacking half, our referees are instructed to call for an indirect free-kick at the center of the court.

In many youth leagues around the world, it is common that the goalkeeper must restart on his half to avoid the typical “long ball” game and encourage players to come out of the back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small-sided soccer game that is widely played across the world.

The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for soccer competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Many of the top world class soccer players played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their soccer development; players of the caliber of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Messi, and Ronaldo to name just a few legends.

Ronaldinho once stated that, “Futsal is an extremely important way for kids to develop their skills and understanding of the game.”.

While traditional Futsal is played on a hard court surface, we decided on synthetic turf vs. hard court flooring for our fields for a few reasons.

  1. We wanted the facility to be accessible to all ages and ability levels. With synthetic turf, the ball will roll slightly slower allowing for better control at all ages.
  2. The cushioned ground will be safer for both players and goalkeepers; and
  3. We will be using the fields in-season for our competitive teams limiting the number and types of shoes our players need to purchase.

Futsal and small-sided soccer is an effective development tool that is quickly replacing the conventional US walled indoor soccer game.

Small-sided soccer creates honesty within the game, providing isolation of individual talent and technique. It will isolate and expose a team and player’s deficiencies. It will also showcase a player and team’s strengths. The game is fast and numerous finishing opportunities are offered when played well. Technical and tactical speeds are emphasized. A bad touch or a slow recovery will almost always result with a loss of possession. Quite frequently the lesson is driven home with a goal scored by the opposition. These lessons learned hard are not easily forgotten. The satisfying thing about small-sided soccer is that lessons are quickly learned and that players readily adjust themselves to the game’s demands. Coaching clinicians have often stressed that the game is the best teacher. By putting players in learning situations, the results of the decisions and their technical execution will educate them with a minimum of coaching involvement.

Players should wear futsal shoes only. Black-soled shoes will not be allowed.

All players should bring their current kits for the clubs (both colors – home and away) to the games.
