Rose City Futsal was founded in 2013 by a group of ten Portland families passionate about soccer who set out to create a place where all soccer fans and players could celebrate the heart of the game. Rose City Futsal offers training and play at all levels, as well as soccer shops, physical therapy sessions and a pub to enjoy food and drink while watching or after playing.

Fun and fast, Futsal is a dynamic form of soccer played worldwide. It is a five-a-side game played on a court about the size of a basketball court. The smaller, heavier ball stays on the ground more, encouraging quick play and improving footwork. This makes Futsal an ideal training tool for youth and adults or simply an awesome game on its own.
The game of Futsal began in Uruguay in the 1930’s as a 5-a-side game for youth players in YMCA competitions. It quickly spread throughout South America, becoming most popular in Brazil as a fun pick up form of soccer, often played to lively music with a strong focus on ball control and quick passing. Compared to soccer, futsal demands more versatile players and has a much lower injury rate.
Many of the top soccer players in the world claim futsal as a pivotal element in their skills development – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Alexis Sanchez, just to name a few.
