    I don't know about licenses - I'll bet there are building codes and things you'd need.

    But a professional indoor field is approx. 200 feet long by 85 feet wide. Recreational fields are often a bit smaller.

    The guy you should ask is Tom Higginson at Let's Play Sports. www.letsplaysports.com.

    One niche that is just waiting to happen is a full size outdoor field built indoors for 11v11 play.

    120 yards x 80 yards and you can run soccer leagues and camps all year round in a place like Miami.

    Come to Washington DC and make a million dollars a year with that set up. The Mid Atlantic is starving for a year round soccer facility under a bubble. We have 25,000 soccer players in the city of DC alone who would use it all year.

    My understanding is that a real full-size indoor field is 180' x 80'. But of course not all of them are this size. There's an organization that can give you a lot of help called The U.S. Indoor Soccer Association. I've always had this fantasy about opening an indoor place that would be just for pick-up games myself. Not everybody wants to play leagues.

    A professional indoor field is recommended to be 200 x 85. Now it may be that a "real" full-size field for the 99.9% of people who don't play professionally is 180 x 80. Seems to me that there's some variance. I've played on some indoor fields that looked really long and some that seemed really small.

    My apologies for shorting you the extra feet. Actually I got the size from an article quoting Tom Higginson and I believe the quote was something like "You can have a smaller field in your arena but if another arena opens with a full-size 80' x 180' field then everyone will go there." So it's not really an "official' size, just something to aim for.

    Firstly its not a court - its a pitch

    Secondly what form of soccer are you intending play?

    Futsal or Soccer

    Futsal has particual flooring needs

    Surface of the pitch The surface shall be smooth and flat and non-abrasive. The use of wood or artificial material is recommended. Concrete or tarmac should be avoided.

    Dimensions The pitch must be rectangular. The length of the touch line must be greater than the length of the goal line. Dimensions Length: minimum 25 m maximum 42 m Width: minimum 15 m maximum 25 m International matches Length: minimum 38 m maximum 42 m Width: minimum 18 m maximum 25 m

    If you want to open an arena for indoor soccer in the US, you can expect to put down Fieldturf or its equivalent and to have boards. That is, if you want to make money and have people play there. There's at least half a dozen indoor soccer facilities in the Denver area that I know of. There isn't a single Futsal "pitch" or whatever you call it. Where are you located Grah? Have you ever played indoor soccer?

    em from now until may the tempature will unlikely get above +10c and get as low as -40c with jan to feb average about -20c

    So yes I have played indoors.

    Yes I now how much faster indoor gamess with boards are but its not as good for skill development.

    Futsal is a sport that is a derivative of soccer and played with five-man teams on a basketball style court, with no walls and a low bouncing ball, unlike the traditional sport of U.S. indoor soccer played with six-man squads and walls. Great soccer superstars such as Pele, Zico and Ronaldo grew up playing the game and credit Futsal with developing their skills. U.S. Futsal is under the banner of U.S. Soccer, which is the governing body for the sport in the United States.

    Overview of usa NATIONAL TEAM
    One year after hosting international matches for the first time, the U.S. continued on the road to the 2004 FIFA Futsal World Championship which will be played Nov. 21-Dec. 5, 2004 in Chinese Taipei.

    Under the direction of head coach Keith Tozer, the U.S. Futsal National Team won the 2003 Futsal Goal Cup held at the Anaheim Convention Center with CONCACAF rivals Mexico, Canada and Guatemala in attendance.
