3 minutes of futsal skills

The beautiful game is played on a hard court and it’s called futsal. Here are three facts about the sport:

  1. Futsal was created by Juan Carlos Ceriani in Uruguay in 1930, the same year the national soccer team hosted and won the inaugural FIFA World Cup.
  2. Since the first FIFA Futsal World Cup (men’s), played in 1989, there have been 9 Futsal World Cups. Brazil have won the most with 5 and lost only 4 matches in 9 competitions
  3. Notably, there is still no FIFA Fustal World Cup for women. Instead, the Women’s Futsal World Tournament (started in 2010) is organised by national associations and the World Futsal Association.
