For Futsal to be treated as a proper sport it need’s to be played all year round, not just as a fill-in form of training in between football seasons.
In many overseas countries the main Futsal season is played from February to September, not eight weeks in October to December.
In order for players to treat Futsal as their main sport they will need to train on a weekly basis, and therefore make it their sporting priority.
This would then bring Futsal’s structure in line with the way the game is played in leading Futsal countries around the world.
As a result all teams must train and play games on a home and away format. Each game will be played on full international courts with two referee’s in a club environment.
