What is Futsal?

GCA FC is an official sanctioned Futsal club by CJSA in Connecticut. Futsal is similar to Street Soccer and is an exciting, fast paced small-sided game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognized by UEFA and FIFA.

The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure and is an excellent way to prepare players for the demand of the 11-a-side game.

Many of the European and South America soccer stars today grew up playing Futsal and credit it with supporting their soccer development and careers. Christiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas have played Futsal as youth players and played a big part of who they are today as soccer stars.

" Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing……also for dribbling, balance and concentration… Futsal was very, very important, no doubt."

Pele - FIFA World Cup Winner: 1958, 1962 & 1970

Futsal is typically a five-a-side game, normally played in a flat indoor surface using small goals. A size 4 harder ball is used for less bounce with no walls or boards. It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head height. Games are typically 20 minutes per half.

The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

In general, Futsal is an extremely important way for kids to develop their skills and understanding of the game.

Glen Celtic America FC has partnered with the Futsal & Street Soccer Club and Alfred Bacabac will be our technical advisor for the game of Futsal
