The game of Futsal is the only official format of indoor small sided football recognised and supported by both FIFA and UEFA.

The game itself is 5-a-side, played on a hard, even surface played to lines on a court. The ball is weighted, aiding the skill level of play, and the goals are of a hockey size as opposed to 5-a-side goals.

In Dorset we run the county round of The FA's National Futsal Festival for youth teams each season. The county winner's for the U10, U12, U14 & I16 Boys and Girls go on to represent Dorset at the South West Regional Competition which feeds into the National Finals.

We are also supporting clubs to develop other opportunities to play this format of the sport including the introduction of a winter break in the Dorset Girls League to allow Futsal Festivals to be played.
