About us

Simply said, futsal is a fast-paced, indoor version of football (Fútbol Sala). Originally from South America, Futsal has produced many of the great South American modern footballers who started out on the indoor courts, such as Neymar, Coutinho, Ronaldinho, and more.

Futsal has a few major differences with the original sport: five people per team including the keeper, smaller and squarer goals, a smaller and heavier ball, two 20-minute halves per game, and no offside. Because there are only 5 players per team, games are usually much more intense and require a lot of strategy. Wonder what Futsal looks like?

This is the 6th year of the LSE Futsal Club, having participated every year in the BUCS league where we played against other universities such as Imperial College, UCL, Queen's Mary, UEL, and more. We strive to build 3 really competitive teams; Men's 1st and 2nd teams and our Women's team! Each team will have a training and at least one game per week, with a bonus session as well for those who wish to go above the call of duty!

This year BUCS has postponed the league fixtures to Lent Term but following Government and FA guidelines we are working on organising friendly fixtures and tournaments throughout Michaelmas Term so there will still be plenty of opportunities to play games!
