  5. SUPPORT OF PLAY: Without a wall or rebound boards to rely on in order to escape from tight situations, you must make supporting runs when teammates have the ball.

  6. FOUNDATION: Many of soccer’s greatest players like Messi, Pelé, Ronaldo, Iniesta, and Neymar all grew up playing futsal and credit futsal with developing their skills.

  7. KNOWLEDGE: With four court players and all the basic options of the outdoor game in non-stop action mode, players' understanding of the game is enhanced.

  8. MORE TECHNICAL: Futsal rules encourage technical play and do not permit the aggressive physical play that soccer allows

  9. CONTINUITY OF PLAY: Action is continuous, so players are forced to continue the play instead of stopping and watching like in Soccer.

  10. MORE AND MORE: More shooting, more goals, more action! Players rotate positions throughout the game, so every player is 100% involved in every game.
