How The World Futsal Federation Works

The World Futsal Federation will play a fundamental role in society and therefore adherence to good governance principles is fundamental for the fulfillment of our statutory objectives and social mission. As futsal's newest world governing body we are strongly committed to the principles of good governance, transparency and zero tolerance towards discriminatory wrong doing.

The World Futsal Federation's five main futsal development programmers comprise:

1. Consultancy Member associations interested in officially launching futsal within their territory or in reviewing their current activities can apply for different types of consultancy support. An expert visit may be arranged for an assessment of the current situation and to help, where necessary, with the creation of the association's four-year futsal development plan. In addition to expertise, member associations can also benefit from sports equipment (futsal balls) and teaching material.

2. Education the World Futsal Federation's education courses for futsal coaches and referees aim at supporting and complementing the initiatives of confederations and member associations. The courses usually last five days and include both theoretical and practical sessions. The World Futsal Federation's appoints an instructor to conduct the course and to help develop an education strategy for the member association.

3. Grassroots boys and girls aged 6-12 are the focus of the World Futsal Federation's Grassroots Programs, which encourages kids to play futsal through school, community and club initiatives. Considering the popularity of futsal and the increasing demand among its member associations, the World Futsal Federation now offers grassroots programs with a focus on the characteristics of futsal through the World Futsal Federation Youth Academy initiative. Typically, a World Futsal Federation Grassroots project is composed of a training program for male and female coach-educators and a festival for boys and girls. The training, led by experienced World Futsal Federation instructors, aims to introduce coach-educators to the methodology of teaching young people and provide them with basic knowledge on the characteristics and benefits of futsal. The festival should offer an opportunity for as many children as possible to discover and enjoy futsal through fun practice sessions and small games.

4. Competitions The development of futsal competitions and leagues for both men and women around the world is still in its formative stage, and the World Futsal Federation recognizes the challenges that this creates for the further development of the game. To increase the number of domestic futsal leagues at various levels, the World Futsal Federation offers expert and tailor-made assistance on how to structure and format competitions. 

5. The World Futsal Federation Legacy initiative and World Futsal Federation World Cups are a valuable opportunity to plant the seeds of futsal development in the host country. The World Futsal Federation legacy program may feature a vast array of different projects (Jr's, Youth, Amateur, Pro, Domestic, International), which should be discussed and developed in close cooperation between the host association's leadership and league officials. Each member association shall assign a person to be responsible for the World Futsal Federation legacy program and to work in tandem with the relevant World Futsal Federation counterparts.
