Originating from the words futebol de salão (Portuguese) and fútbol sala (Spanish) meaning hall football, Futsal is an indoor five vs. five game. Futsal, known to be the fast-paced shorter format of football, usually fields 5 players a side instead of 11 as in the longer format. In recent years, Futsal has taken Asia and the world by storm with multiple amateur, semi-professional and professional leagues.
