Welcome to Kewford Eagles FUTSAL section.
Football and Futsal are two different sports! There are a number of benefits for football by encouraging young people to play Futsal as part of a balanced training programme to improve their overall technical development.
Futsal helps speed of decision-making, technical skills and creative thinking, which the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Ronaldinho, Messi, De Gea and Ronaldo have all acquried through childhood Futsal!
"Research indicates that individual’s playing Futsal receive the ball six times more often than they would do when they are playing 11-a-side football, allowing players to perform more individual techniques such as passes, controls, fakes, feints, dribbles and runs with the ball (Liverpool John Moores University, 2001)."
“During my childhood in Portugal, all we played was Futsal. The small playing area helped me improve my close control, and whenever I played Futsal I felt free. If it wasn’t for Futsal, I wouldn’t be the player I am today.”
