Futsal originated in the South American countries of Uruguay and Brazil. Games are played in a five-a-side format, in an indoor court with a size 4 ball with reduced bounce and with rules that make Futsal fast-paced, dynamic and an exciting sport to participate in.The differences to traditional versions of small sided football are the absence of rebound boards and some slight amendments in the laws that favour skilful, creative play above the physical contact that tends to be a feature of English five-a-side. Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development, such as Neymar, Ronaldinho, Iniesta, Messi.
