About USIndoor Soccer
Founded in 1998, the United States Indoor Soccer Association (“USIndoor”) is dedicated to the best interests of indoor soccer – its players, fans, coaches, leagues, tournaments, referees, and sponsors. Through the services of USIndoor, indoor soccer enthusiasts can keep updated on the latest news, learn about upcoming tournaments and events, access official rules and regulations, find out about becoming a referee, reflect on the game’s history and tap into a devoted fan base from all over the world.
Indoor soccer takes a variety of forms. There’s the boarded game, often called “arena soccer” or simply “indoor soccer,” which is most prevalent in the United States and played within confines similar to a hockey rink; the non-boarded game, known as futsal, played on hard flooring, similar in size to a basketball court and recognized internationally by FIFA; and a hybrid game, most popular in Canada and growing in the U.S., that is played on artificial turf and without boards. Regardless of the form, USIndoor embraces them all under the banner of USIndoor Soccer, a founding member of the United States Indoor Sports Association – the indoor sport industry’s international trade association.
