How are futsal balls different to regular footballs? Futsal is played indoors on hard courts that are much smaller than 11-a-side pitches used in regular football, and the ball used is also smaller. Futsal balls are usually size 4 with around 30% less bounce to keep the ball on the court so players can use their skill to control and play the ball on the floor.
For children looking to practise, futsal balls vary in size from size 1 up to size 5 depending on age and size, so children of all ages can practise futsal. Smaller futsal balls are also useful for adults looking to increase their technical skills and control in training.
