Brasil Futebol Academy presents...
3rd Annual
Futsal League 2003
Develop your skills the same way some of the Brazilian greats like Pele, Zico, Romario, Ronaldo, and Denlison. These legendary soccer stars grew up playing FUTSAL, where the emphasis is on ball skills.

FUTSAL, also called "5-A-Side", is a FIFA sanctioned game played both indoors and outdoors. The size of playing area is roughly the size of a basketball court and no walls are used. The word FUTSAL is derived from the Portuguese or Spanish word for "SOCCER", Futbol or Futebol, and the word for "indoor" sala or salao. The game is not only exciting, but also regarded around the world as an invaluable skill-sharpening exercise on and off season. The FUTSAL ball is the key to develop close ball control. An adult FUTSAL ball is approximately the circumference of a size 4 soccer ball, but noticeably heavier. FUTSAL balls have low-bounce and low-flight characteristics, so the emphasis is on close control.
