“I play soccer, But Futsal will always be what I enjoy most”
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.
