Futsal Ball Evolution -

Futsal Ball Evolution -

 The 8 panel futsal ball are the most recommended due to less mending panels - stitched futsal ball with 30 panels tends to have a bumping bounce when rolling on rubberized futsal courts . 

There are many futsal balls on the market since FIFA adopted the game of futsal under great game umbrella. But most of brand name are forgetting the high performance as well as the durability of a futsal ball played on hard surface . 

You can get a cheaper or the best ones . the pictures says it at all . Penalty will outlast them all .

Ball sizes for children Max 50 for 7 years old and under
Max 100 for 9 years old and under   8 panels low bouncing but soft PU leather  Made in Brazil 
 USA Youth Futsal made the right choice with Penalty

 According to coach Terence Pereira - Estilo Livre Futsal Academy  in Brazil ,the Penalty futsal ball 8 panels has proved to be the best ball in all qualifications 
Brazilians  World's best soccer players played with Penalty

In 1985, after five years developing futsal in Canada, primarily in Nanaimo and Vancouver Island, we received from Fifusa, an invitation to participate at the Second World Futsal Championships in Spain.We realize that, it was an opportunity to spread futsal in the mainland and across Canada.The Vancouver Italian Canadian Soccer team was in Nanaimo playing in the Pacific Coast Semi-Pro Soccer league. Watching the game, Leo Beier and I, spotted some gifted soccer players. Talking to the Vancouver Team Manager  Charlie Cuzzetto, we went over details about futsal in Canada, and from that we arranged a meeting with the Vancouver players.Charlie and tthe Vancouver players, never saw a futsal ball or new the rules of the game, I explained about futsal and the event in Spain.

Without government funding, we formed a team, Charlie Cuzzetto 
did the manager duties, fundraising, booking gym time for training, and travel arrangement.

Due to working commitment, Canadian Futsal Team Head Coach Ike Mackay did not go to Spain. Carlos Mateus shared his  coaching knowledge with the players, as well as  made many trips on the Vancouver Island Ferry Boat. We had to pay for the travel air tickets, to represent Canada in the Second World Futsal Cup in Spain. The Brazilian sporting manufacturer Penalty sponsored the uniforms, and the Spanish Futsal Association paid for meals, accommodations and local transportation.

In Spain the  five star hotel , on the waterfront of a naturalist beach in Mar de Las Cana, (boarding Portugal), in the city of Huelva, Serville, was bonus .training futsal on the white sand, surrounded by topless tourist gathering was not an easy task.

However; Canada drew Uruguay, Spain and Australia.
In the first game against Uruguay, the Canadian Players shown the world that they were there to compete and displayed a great performance, before the seventeen years old, Canadian goalkeeper Frank Lecce, allows the Uruguayans score three times, one of our best player Ivan Belfiore had sum burn, only played in the second half. 
In the second game against Spain, Canada scored an impressive goal; the ball went between the Spanish keeper legs, Joe Cuzzetto, the goal scorer until now talks about it.

The Spanish team was well prepared, during the qualifying round robin, defeated Australia , Canada and Uruguay.  Brazil beat Spain in the final game,  3 to 1 to  claim  the second world title.
Canada, Japan , Australia and Holland were newcomers as well.
