Futsal (Indoor Soccer)

Students play indoor soccer in a gymnasium

Futsal is a variation of soccer played indoors on a solid floor. Futsal matches at UNMC are played six vs. six (five field players and one goalie). A minimum of four players must be present to start a match. Matches consist of two 14-minute halves separated by a five minute halftime break. Time is kept on a running clock with no stoppages. Games last roughly 45 minutes (including halftime) and are scheduled at 45-minute intervals.

Seven weeks of round robin play make up the regular season. A team's results during the regular season determine seeding for the postseason playoff tournament. The team that wins the postseason tournament will be awarded the intramural championship t-shirts on the final night of the tournament.
