Why Futsal is suitable in Bhutan

In Bhutan, there are many hard surface football pitches. We could make use of these existing facilities to develop this game if proper line marking are drawn & goal posts are installed. Particularly, 90% of the local schools have no football ground for training or competitions but, they do have a basketball court. This size is already ideal enough for the students to play the Futsal game. Or we may also consider creating the 4 vs 4 competitions without goalkeepers on the basket court. Actually, there is more youths taking part in the Futsal.
