What is futsal?
Futsal is the indoor version of football played between two teams of five players, including one goalkeeper, with unlimited substitutions permitted. The confined space, hard court surface and smaller ball create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique.
Football Queensland is committed to the continued development of Futsal by establishing clubs and regions throughout Queensland as well as providing a structured and recognised learning environment for coaches and referees.

Start Futsal School Program
Football Queensland has further strengthened its engagement opportunities with schools through the launch of the Start Futsal program.
Start Futsal is an introductory program which brings FQ and schools together to deliver high-quality participation experiences in fun and educational environments.
With an emphasis on learning and participation, the program delivers the game’s core basic skills and match play principles to children aged 8 to 14. Start Futsal program is designed to initially be delivered over a four-week period by FQ’s endorsed and qualified coaches.
Football Queensland is seeking Expressions of Interest from futsal clubs and futsal competition administrators that are interested in affiliating with FQ for the 2023 season.
