Futsal is the only form of indoor soccer or five-a-side that is officially approved by FIFA and Football Federation Australia (FFA).
Playing Futsal allows players to touch the ball nearly twelve times more than playing outdoor football/soccer in half the amount of time. It is exciting, many goals are scored and the game is devoid of complex rules such as off-side.
Futsal Geelong is the largest provider of Futsal in the Geelong region, operating out of both the Barwon Valley Activity Centre (BVAC) in Belmont and the Leisuretime Centre in Bell Post Hill.
Futsal Geelong was created in 2008 by the City of Greater Geelong Sports Venues Management team. The first summer season had just 15 junior teams involved and the sport in the region has quickly grown, with the 2016-17 Summer Futsal Season having approx. 260 teams ( representing a 22% growth on the previous season) registering across various age groups and divisions between the two venues.
