What is Futsal and Futsal Betting Guide

Futsal is a modified version of football. It is played indoors with five players on each side, with a smaller ball. The emphasis is on skill, and the game’s pace is much faster than conventional football.

The game originated in Uruguay in the 1930s when a school teacher called Juan Carlos Ceriani created the game and encouraged his students to play on a basketball court to work on their skills and technique.

But it wasn’t until 1989 that FIFA (the world governing body of soccer) took the game over and launched the first-ever Futsal World Cup, which Brazil won.

In Latin American countries, it’s common for young players to grow up playing futsal before transferring to football, which is one of the reasons they are regarded as such technically gifted players.

Here, we introduce you to the major futsal leagues and tournaments that you can bet on throughout the season and explain the different types of futsal bets you can place at the Stake Sportsbook .

Futsal Leagues, Teams & Major Tournaments

Since UEFA and FIFA enveloped futsal into their remit, the major tournaments and events in Futsal mirror those in football. Therefore, the most prominent futsal events that you can bet on at Stake.com include:

  • FIFA Futsal World Cup: Held every four years, the FIFA Futsal World Cup has been competed since 1989. Portugal are the current World Champions, but Brazil are the most successful nation in the competition’s history, with five titles to their name.

  • UEFA Futsal Euro: Founded in 1996, the UEFA Futsal Euro has been dominated by Spain, who have won seven of the 12 titles. Portugal have won the past two Euro titles and have cemented their place as the best futsal team in the world.

How to Bet on Futsal & Types of Futsal Bets

  • Outright : You can also place an outright futsal bet, which is a wager on the team you think will win a tournament like the Futsal World Cup outright.

  • Handicap : In a futsal handicap bet, you can bet on one team to overcome a goal deficit to defeat their opponent.

  • First goal scorer: This is a bet on the player you think will score the first goal in a futsal match.

  • Anytime goal scorer: Alternatively, you can bet on a player to score at any time during a futsal match.

  • Total team goals: This is a wager on the total number of goals you believe one team will score in a futsal match.

  • Player specials: Player specials include things like the number of goals and whether a player will be sent off in a futsal match.

Futsal Betting Tips & Strategies to Win

To help you make a profit from futsal betting, here are some top tips to bear in mind when thinking about which teams to bet on:

  • Though futsal is like football, it’s not the same. In futsal, it’s best to back technically gifted teams and players who play the game at a fast pace. Nations like Brazil, Portugal, and Argentina tend to produce the best futsal players in the world.

  • Clean sheets are rare in futsal, and the goalkeeper position is perhaps the most difficult on the pitch. Bear this in mind when betting on the total number of goals you think will be scored in a futsal match.

  • In futsal, substitutions are available throughout the match in a roll-on, roll-off format. This can sometimes make it a little more difficult to predict which player will be the next goal scorer, as they might not be on the pitch!

  • You should always research the form and previous performances of the players and teams that you’re planning to bet on. As is the case in football, futsal players can go in and out of form, so don’t just bet on a team based on their reputation alone.

  • Futsal betting should be fun, so please remember to gamble responsibly when making your futsal selections. You can read through our Stake Smart guidelines for further help with responsible betting.
