Futsal originally is played on hard ground or pitch with total players of five each side one of whome is goalkeeper. But Nepal is introduced with term futsal as mini-football, where rules and regulations are same as futsal. Futsal is being more popular with in the cities of Nepal. Cities like Kathmandu, Bhaktput, Lalitpur, Chitwan, Butwal, Dharan, Itahari, Pokhara are developed areas of Nepal and can maintain good status of these sport, As futsal arenas are one of the expensive place to pay in Nepal. As Nepalese peoples are gorwing there interest on football for past four-five years, futsal is also bieng good place to hangout for neplese football fans.
Nepal doesn't have original futsal court as we know futsal is played in fiber or wood court, Nepalese considered mini-football as futsal. Mini football is played on small artifical grass with small tiny rubbers inside grass. It is also played indoor with same rules and same court size the only difference is court type or pitch type. There are more than fourty futsal with in the country with same pitch of tiny rubbers and artificial grass.People found futsal to me more interesting then other as every age group can play for fitness and fun. It has attracted not only young people but also people working at office and organization. Football 11-side is hard to play as ball is bouncy as well as difficult and should be played in dust under direct sun and need lots of energy.It is hard for people age above 40 and there must be 22 players total and need more substitution too So its hard to gather 25 people around your who can play in Nepal.every people cant play 11-side football but everyone can try playing Futsal, there is no need to play professional.small children to elder plays futsal in Nepal. young boys from 18-27 age play more then other age group. Nowdays every second people will be playing futsal in Nepal somwhere from 6AM to 8PM. This is really growing game and lots of tournament keeps on happening every time. There are many good teams in Nepal as I have seen till today. Some play to Improve some paly for fun as some come to cheer up players. It's really fun playing futsal It makes people do some exercise and clear their mind and make fresh. In Nepal people from companies or some organiation play more during weekend for fun and personal fitness.Some people come to play futsal just to loose their weight and heavy stomach.Football is Fun.
