Welcome to Futsal Escocia

Futsal is a fast and exciting small sided football based game that originated in South America in the 1930’s. It is currently the fastest growing indoor sport in the world and the only indoor sport approved by UEFA and FIFA. The name Futsal was chosen by FIFA using a combination of the Spanish word for indoor (Sala) and football (Futbol).

Futsal Escocia was founded in 2015 and our coaches have gained valuable experience in coaching futsal across the world.

The pitch, the ball and the laws of the game of provide a number of benefits to playing futsal. Although futsal is a sport in it’s own right it also has it’s benefits for aspiring footballers.

Research has shown that individuals playing futsal will receive the ball 6 times more than playing 11 a side football. More touches of the ball naturally means more development and more fun. The game of futsal regularly puts players into 1v1 situations which require quick decision making to beat the opponent by skill or clever passing and movement.

As in modern day football, ball retention is vitally important with poor passing or decision making normally punished.

Due to the limited space and being confined by the lines of a futsal court, the game encourages movement and rotation from players as well as a sense of innovation and creativity to create goal scoring opportunities for yourself or your teammates.
