You should know that Pele and Ronaldo played: Futsal/Five-a-Side. It's the world's official indoor soccer game, played within the existing side and end lines of a basketball court without the need for sidewalls or artificial turf. The term, "Futsal," is derived from the Spanish, "futbol sala," meaning indoor soccer. It also is referred to as indoor five-a-side. In the United States, it originally was referred to as "minisoccer."
Futsal is gaining rapid popularity in the U.S. because it adapts so well to existing facilities. For instance, it is now being played in gymnasiums throughout the country by the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Anywhere you have a basketball gym, from Key West, Fla., to Ketchikan, Alaska, you can play Futsal, and you can play it on outdoor courts, as well.
Futsal is one of the world's great skill-developers for youth players. Pele, Zico and Socrates of Brazilian World Cup fame grew up playing the game, and Brazil's recent World Cup stars, Romario and Bebeto, have played it extensively. Ronaldo played it until he was 16. Futsal is an ingeniously condensed version of the outdoor game that preserves the outdoor game's true time and space relationships. The ball-handling speed and skill and quick thinking of Futsal translate directly to the outdoor game - around both goals and in the thick of midfield battle. To see some great video of futsal play, go on YouTube and search for "FUTSAL."
