What is Futsal?
Futsal is the only FIFA and NZ Football approved version of five-aside football and the world’s fastest growing indoor sport. The name futsal is derived from the Portuguese words futebol (football) and sala (hall). Futsal is a small-sided – 5v5 – game played with a smaller (size 3 or 4) low bounce ball, on a basketball sized court without rebound walls or nets. It is a game which combines fun, creativity, speed, technique, teamwork and quick thinking. NZF Futsal has been designed to complement New Zealand Football’s existing programmes and promote and improve participation in football in New Zealand.
Futsal in the Capital
In line with national growth, the regional increase in the popularity of Futsal in Wellington has been unprecedented. Player numbers could be best described as humble pre-2012 when Capital Football took over the management and delivery of the game. Playing numbers have increased 190% over the last 9 years as we have developed the game in the junior, youth, and senior space.
Capital Football runs Futsal out of three main venues across the wider Wellington region.
