What is Futsal?

Futsal is a modified form of soccer played with five players per team on a smaller hard-surface area.  Futsal is usually referred to as Mini-Soccer or Five-A-Side.  Futsal became popularized in Brazil and spread rapidly through the rest of South America and the world thanks to its efficiency in helping players build invaluable ball-handling skills.  These unique skills are often showcased by world-famous Brazilian pro soccer players on full-size soccer fields.
