I searched through Google for some up-to-date training material on FIFA Futsal and… nothing. Nada. I was surprised to see that there wasn’t much general talk about it going on so I decided to make my own training material for a bit of a fun and general education.

This is to be your one-stop shop for Futsal rules education.

Here’s my favourite Futsal introduction video.

FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game


FIFA Futsal Q&A

I have hosted this document here in case someone takes it down as despite being dated, it has a lot of useful information. Any conflict it has with the latest version of the FLOTG would result in the latter having more precedence.

Futsal Quiz

Here is a Futsal Laws of the Game test with questions that I drew up. I have worded the questions to the best of my ability to mirror the Laws of the Game technical wording so please feel free to comment on this page if you have any suggestions. If you are new to Futsal or would like to brush up your knowledge, I’m sure this will be a great resource!

Don’t think of these as strictly worded FIFA questions. Try to understand the sentiment behind the question.

If there is an odd rule in Futsal I haven’t addressed here that you’d like to see a scenario of, comment and ask here!



The videos and pictures of Futsal scenarios in this section could not have been done without great credit to Ahsen, Vinh, Ankit & Omar. Check out this awesome crew below and in the pages above.

    I would like to see an explanation of what is considered a foul in futsal. From what I have observed I think refs have a hard time transitioning from outdoor/indoor to futsal. IMO futsal should be played as an almost non-contact sport. Could someone expound on this?

      Hard to define and your observation is indeed keen. There’s a lower physicality tolerance. If you watch international Futsal matches, they are played usually much more physical than at the Futsal grassroots but less so than international football. Hard to answer your question comprehensively and not misguide another reader.
