Fustal 1

With the aim of bringing together Muslims students from the various Islamic schools in Victoria, the Australian International academy (AIA) has been organizing an inter-Islamic school FUTSAL (Indoor Soccer) competition. Students from our school have been participating in this competition since its introduction with progressive levels of success. In this year’s Inter Islamic Schools Indoor Soccer Competition, our boys were crowned the overall champions with an exhilarating victory in the finals over AIA.



Fustal 2Futsal is a format of five-a-side football that is played extensively throughout the world. The term ‘Futsal’ is an abbreviation of the Portuguese ‘futebol de salão’ or the Spanish ‘futbol sala’, both of which when translated literally mean ‘indoor football’. It is played on a pitch approximately the size of a basketball or netball court with a ball which is smaller and heavier than the outdoor football and has a reduced bounce.

The ball forces a player to use his skill rather than the ball’s bounce to propel it. As a small sided game, players are constantly placed in situations where they must receive or play whilst under pressure or in confined spaces.
