Manchester Futsal in action at the national FA Futsal Finals.


Play in the #HomeofFutsal

Futsal is considered the premium format of five-a-side football. Played in-doors the rules are slightly modified to accommodate the smaller pitch size. An ideal game for those wanting to play with mates and develop their skills, Futsal can be played at several venues around Manchester.

Is Futsal for me?

Futsal is ideal for those wanting to play football with a twist. Played on a smaller, indoor court it is great for those cold, wet winter nights or hot summer days. The game is popular amongst those who played traditional football as a child and are now interested in playing a different version of the game. There are a variety of pathway opportunities, including national representation, for those interested in developing their skills further.

I love the fact that you get more touches on the ball. You are always involved, always thinking and challenging yourself in defensive and attacking situations. I just try to play as much as I can, as it gives me more confidence and enjoyment.
