Futsal is a 5v5 version of soccer that's played on basketball-sized courts, without the use of the sidewalls. Substitutions are made on the fly and the game emphasizes ball possession and ball handling, due to the fact that each player gets at least 80 touches on the ball per game. The short pass and team work is heavily emphasized. Futsal dates back to the 1930s and is played worldwide at every level.
