Futsal - Yokohama Sports Teams Special

Futsal is a sport played on a court about one-ninth the size of a soccer court. It is estimated that more than 7 million people play this sport worldwide.
Two teams of five players (four field players and a goalkeeper) play against each other. It differs from soccer in that it uses a smaller, less bouncy ball. According to the official rules, a futsal game lasts 40 minutes, 20 minutes for the first and second halves, but in amateur games, the time can be changed according to the physical strength of the players.
Strong contact play, such as sliding tackles, is a foul, and futsal is characterized by less contact play than soccer. It is a sport that can be enjoyed by a wide range of people regardless of experience, gender, or age.

At a futsal game, you can even feel the players' breath. Be sure to pay attention to the players’ "feet". You’ll be impressed by their speedy and brilliant footwork.


Most futsal matches are held indoors. This is a great advantage because it is less likely to be affected by the weather and get cancelled suddenly, making it easy to make plans to watch a futsal game. It is a good idea to include watching one in your travel plans.
