Sporting games and groups for adults at the MARC

Looking for a new sport that keeps you fit and active? Sign up now for Senior Futsal at the MARC. 

Futsal is an abbreviation of futebol de salão in Portuguese or futsala in Spanish which translates to big room soccer.

  • It is a variant of football, played on an indoor hard court between two teams of five
  • The game ball is smaller and heavier than a normal football, reducing bounce
  • There are unlimited substitutions allowing more play time for everyone in the team, and with limited space on the smaller court, you'll always be in the middle of the action!
