Ninh explains, the Rules of Futsal. The object of the game is for your team to score more goals than the opposing team. Futsal is an indoor variation of Football (or ‘Soccer’) if you prefer, and the general rules of the game apply here, but with some significant differences. This variation is played with two teams of up to 14 players, with 5 players taking the court at any one time. They include one goalkeeper and four outfield players. The game is played on an indoor court that measures 40m x 20 m. Goal areas are a 6m arc around the nets, and the goals are a lot smaller too, 3 metres wide and 2 metres high. To score a goal, you must put ball into your opponent’s goal. For it to count, the whole of the ball must completely cross the goal line. In futsal, you are allowed to touch the ball with every part of your body except your arms. The main ways to move the ball is to kick the ball to a team mate which is known as a pass, or run with the ball whilst controlling it with your feet, known as dribbling.
