    I heard this a long time ago, but Mike Conway would neither confirm nor deny it. I play at NERRC.

    I played at Perring for years on the front field

    I've never been to the one in Dundalk but I think it does not have boards.

    Duburns was not sold ... the City has a New Management Company taking it over that is all Baltimore made a deal with a company to mannage 50 rec centers and pools for the next 5 years
    they dont have any room to expand duburns arena to add 2 futsal fields

    The city looked at the cost to expand duburns and put a 6K seat arena there for the blast untill a brand new arena could be built and it just could not be done .

    If you take away the boards and the glass, you could easily fit two futsal fields in that area.
    Do you know what a futsal field is?

    It sucks so bad that it is played world wide and the USA currently is not even in the rank of the top 25 in the world. And that there are womens and mens national teams. Or the fact that Futsal places are popping up all over the place.

    Gee Futsal is so terrible that FIFA has a website with a Futsal World Cup .
    So I guess it sucks so much that all those people would be idiots eh?

    I like futsal, but I understand why some people don't. It's a matter of personal taste and opinion. ​

    Futsal is basically outdoor soccer indoors on a small field. Slow and boring. I think that alot of people on this site are not big fans of futsal. Gimme walls.................................

    The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces.

    Tell that to all the MISL players on the US Futsal team and then have a discussion with Coach Tozer about your opinion on the sport. Go tot hat website and check out the picture they have on the top of it
    U.S. Futsal, has been Governing the sport of Futsal in the United States since 1981, and has been sponsoring state, regional and national tournaments since 1985. U.S. Futsal, is the only futsal organization directly affiliated to U.S. Soccer!

    Contrary to unpopular belief, this is not a futsal board. I would have to also say I'm in the futsal sucks camp. But I also dislike outdoor soccer immensely. And MPS.

    Futsal is only good when played by the best in the world. It feels like field hockey to watch if the players aren't top notch. And yes.... This is not a futsal board but it is ok to talk about every now and then!
