See what our Futsal program is all about!
Welcome back to the 5th year of the YTP Futsal Academy.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that originated from South America in the 1930's. It is widely played across the world and is a small sided football format that is officially recognized by both UEFA and FIFA.
Futsal began in Uruguay and Brazil where the large crowded cities and a shortage of playing pitches forced a football mad populace to play small sided football, and in 1936 the first rules emerged. Futsal was thew name chosen by FIFA, which is simply a combination of the Spanish words for "hall" (Sala) and "football" (Futbol): hence Futsal, literally translated to mean "indoor football"
The nature of the game provides an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game. Many of the Premier League, and worlds most recognizable football players have a background playing Futsal and credit it with supporting their footballing development. Professional footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Pele, Cesc Fabregas, Xavi, Iniesta amongst many more who benefitted from Futsal in their youth.
