Some fans are worried, some are optimistic, some are dead against the changes fearing futsal is on a path to potentially losing its identity which separates it as a sport in its own right. Read the changes and see where you sit.
On 8 April 2020, the Bureau of the FIFA Council approved an update to the Futsal Laws of the Game. The latest rules form the 2020/21 edition and came into force on 1 June 2020. You can find the most important changes here.
Several of the adjustments reflect recent law changes in football. Competitions interrupted by COVID-19 can be completed in accordance with either the previous Futsal Laws of the Game or the new edition for 2020/21. Any friendly or warm-up games played prior to the resumption of a competition are permitted to use the laws that will be applied when the competition restarts, even if these warm-up matches take place after 1 June 2020.
