The game is a sprint. Plays get set up instantaneously, with quick, controlled passes and close-range shots. Futsal is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It is the only form of indoor soccer recognized by FIFA, (Federation Internationale de Football Association), the international governing body of soccer.
