About Futsal 

Futsal is a variation of soccer played indoors on a solid floor. Anybody that is familiar with the basics of soccer will have no trouble picking up futsal. Futsal matches at UNMC will be played 6 vs. 6 (5 field players + 1 goalie). A minimum of 4 players must be present to start/finish a match. Matches will consist of two 13-minute halves separated by a 5-minute halftime break. Time will be kept on a running clock with no stoppages. Unlimited substitutions are allowed and may be made on-the-fly. Games last roughly 35 minutes (including halftime) and are scheduled at 45-minute intervals.

League Format

The Spring 2020 season will last a maximum of 8 weeks. The first 6 weeks of the season will be the "regular season" phase, and the final 2 weeks will be the "postseason" phase, or playoffs. The regular season phase will be composed of 5 weeks of round-robin play + 1 guaranteed BYE week. A team's results during the regular season will determine seeding for the postseason, a single-elimination playoff tournament. The team that wins the postseason tournament will be awarded the intramural championship t-shirts. 


How do I sign up?
