Futsal is the internationally recognised version of 5 a side football played with a slightly smaller ball that has a reduced bounce. Futsal has been credited in helping develop the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Neymar, Coutinho and many more.
Lionel Messi - “Futsal is like a cauldron for learning where everything is heightened and accelerated due to the fast-flowing and non-stop nature of the game, as a little boy in Argentina, I played Futsal on the streets and for my club. It was tremendous fun, and it really helped me become who I am today.”
Cristiano Ronaldo – “During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was Futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played Futsal I felt free. If it wasn’t for Futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today.”
Ronaldinho - “Futsal is an extremely important factor in developing skills and understanding of the game. My touch and my dribbling have come from playing Futsal.”
Futsal within the University of Worcester consists of one performance team competing in BUCS and a recreational programme for women and men to experience the sport. Following on from our first ever cup win, team of the year award at the University and varsity success in the 2017/18 season we hope to develop the society's success even further in the 2018/19 season and beyond . Our committee’s primary focus is to inspire and develop individuals through our hard work and commitment to our students and the sport.
The society has great contacts with external clubs in the FA National league such as Worcester Futsal Club whom a number of our players represent regularly should anyone express an interest in playing externally.
The club also offers opportunities to socialise and have fun through weekly socials to bond as a society and celebrate game days.
