Raleigh Parks will install micro-soccer (or futsal) pitches at Peach Road Park and Brentwood Park in partnership with the US Soccer Foundation, The Bucy Foundation, and the NC Courage. Work on the Peach Road Park pitch will begin in Fall 2021, and the Brentwood Park pitch will follow in Spring 2022. The US Soccer Foundation will fund the installation of the Musco “all-in-one” court system that will include acrylic surfacing, perimeter wall system, and court lighting.
What is futsal?
Futsal is a fast-paced ball sport similar to soccer but typically played on a small, hard surface court. Games are played between two teams of five, including a goalkeeper for each side. Players use a smaller, harder, low-bounce ball to score goals. Futsal is a game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play to refine and maintain their ball control skills.
