The Green Bay Futsal Classic is a winter futsal tournament held every year for U11-U14 boys teams at UW-Green Bay’s Kress Center and hosted by the Green Bay Phoenix Men’s Soccer team.
Futsal is a small-sided game (5v5 including the goalkeepers) played on a hardcourt surface roughly the size of a basketball court. The game does not require the use of dasher boards. It is played with the touchline boundaries with no walls to bang the ball against. The official ball is a special low bounce ball that is heavier and smaller than an official size 5 soccer ball. The ball forces a player to use their skill rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. It is a complete skill game. Futsal develops the overall fundamentals of soccer more effectively. It has been proven that youth players develop quicker reflexes, faster thinking and pinpoint passing. It is a superior game in terms of establishing players’ touch and technique.
The Green Bay Futsal Classic is played by FIFA’s approved futsal rules.
