Reglas en Inglés de FIFA
There have been a number of amendments to the substance of this year’s
edition of the Futsal Laws of the Game compared with the 2008 edition. The
entire text of the Laws has been examined and revised in order to consolidate
and reorganise the contents and make them more uniform, clearer and easier
to understand. The most significant changes consist of the inclusion of some
of the decisions in the 2008 edition, either in the Laws themselves or in the
section entitled “Interpretation of the Futsal Laws of the Game and Guidelines
for Referees”. The aim of the FIFA Futsal and Beach Soccer Committee in
amending the title of this section was to highlight the fact that although its
main purpose is to complement the Futsal Laws of the Game, its contents are
unquestionably mandatory in nature.
Furthermore, some principles that were previously implicit in the game but
were not explicitly mentioned in the Laws have been included in this new
Finally, the FIFA Futsal and Beach Soccer Committee wishes to remind the
associations and confederations that it is their duty, in accordance with the
FIFA Statutes, to ensure strict and uniform compliance with the Futsal Laws of
the Game in all competitions.

their application for matches for players of under 16 years of age, for women
footballers, for veteran footballers (over 35 years of age) and for players with
Any or all of the following modifications are permissible:
• size of the pitch
• size, weight and material of the ball
• width between the goalposts and height of the crossbar from the ground
• duration of the periods of play
Further modifications are only allowed with the consent of the FIFA Refereeing

Male and female
References to the male gender in the Futsal Laws of the Game in respect of

In view of the numerous modifications to the structure of the Laws, it has been
decided that no line will be used to indicate the amendments in this edition.
LAW 1 – The PITCH
Matches should be played on flat, smooth and non-abrasive surfaces,
preferably made of wood or artificial material, according to the rules of the
competition. Concrete or tarmac should be avoided.
Artificial turf pitches are permitted in exceptional cases and only for national
The pitch must be rectangular and marked with lines. These lines belong to the
areas of which they are boundaries and must be clearly distinguishable from
the colour of the pitch.
The two longer boundary lines are called touch lines. The two shorter lines are
called goal lines.
The pitch is divided into two halves by a halfway line, which joins the midpoints
of the two touch lines.
The centre mark is indicated at the midpoint of the halfway line. A circle with a
radius of 3 m is marked around it.
A mark must be drawn outside the pitch, 5 m from the corner arc and at right
angles to the goal line, to ensure that defending players retreat this distance
when a corner kick is being taken. The width of this mark is 8 cm.
Two additional marks, each at a distance of 5 m to the left and the right of
the second penalty mark, must be made on the pitch to indicate the minimum
distance to be retreated when a kick is being taken from the second penalty
mark. The width of this mark is 8 cm.
LAW 1 – the PITCH 7
The length of the touch line must be greater than the length of the goal line.
All lines must be 8 cm wide.
For non-international matches the dimensions are as follows:
Length (touch line): minimum 25 m
maximum 42 m
Width (goal line): minimum 16 m
maximum 25 m
For international matches the dimensions are as follows:
Length (touch line): minimum 38 m
maximum 42 m
Width (goal line): minimum 20 m
maximum 25 m
The penalty area
Two imaginary lines of 6 m in length are drawn from the outside of each
goalpost and at right angles to the goal line; at the end of these lines a quarter
circle is drawn in the direction of the nearest touch line, each with a radius of
6 m from the outside of the goalpost. The upper part of each quarter circle is
joined by a line 3.16 m in length running parallel to the goal line between the
goalposts. The area bounded by these lines and the goal line is the penalty
Within each penalty area, a penalty mark is made 6 m from the midpoint
between the goalposts and equidistant to them.
8 LAW 1 – The PITCH
The second penalty mark
A second mark is made 10 m from the midpoint between the goalposts and
equidistant to them.
The corner arc
A quarter circle with a radius of 25 cm from each corner is drawn inside the
A goal must be placed on the centre of each goal line.
A goal consists of two upright posts equidistant from the corners and joined
at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The goalposts and crossbar must be made
of wood, metal or other approved material. They must be square, rectangular,
round or elliptical in shape and must not be dangerous to players.
The distance (inside measurement) between the posts is 3 m and the distance
from the lower edge of the crossbar to the ground is 2 m.
Both goalposts and the crossbar have the same width and depth, 8 cm. The
nets must be made of hemp, jute or nylon or other approved material and are
attached to the back of the goalposts and the crossbar with a suitable means
of support. They must be properly supported and must not interfere with the
The goalposts and crossbars must be of a different colour from the pitch.
The goals must have a stabilising system that prevents them from overturning.
Portable goals may only be used if they satisfy this requirement.
LAW 1 – The PITCH 9
The substitution zones
The substitution zones are the areas on the touch line in front of the team
benches, the purpose of which is described in Law 3.
• They are situated in front of the technical area and are 5 m in length. They
are marked at each end with a line 80 cm in length, 40 cm of which is
drawn on the pitch and 40 cm off the pitch, and 8 cm wide
• The area in front of the timekeeper’s table 5 m to either side of the halfway
line is kept clear
• A team’s substitution zone is situated in the half of the pitch defended by
said team and changes in the second half of the match and periods of extra
time, if any
