Because it is played in a space about the size of a basketball court, players are forced to be constantly moving. Additionally, because it is played with a heavier ball, it forces the players to play the “Jogo Bonito”, with the ball on the ground, instead of relying on unpredictable kicks up the field/court.

The most technically advanced soccer players of all time grew up playing futsal:  Ronaldo, Ronaldinho Gaucho, Neymar, Iniesta, Robinho, amongst others.
