5 reasons why Premier Futsal League can help Indian football grow
The Premier Futsal League is set to begin soon and what makes it special is that it serves as a platform for talented youngsters in the country to continue pursuing their dream of pursuing football professionally.
Futsal is a game that is played with the intention to have fun, with players demonstrating their skills and looking to play attacking football at every possible opportunity. The game requires great concentration, good ability on the ball, versatility and the ability to play as a team, all of which will be tested in the Premier Futsal League.
Players who excel at futsal are normally the ones who are able to perform multiple roles, have a wide array of skills and are not afraid to experiment under pressure, something that will come to the fore in the Premier Futsal League.
With the league starting in India in July, we take a look at 5 reasons why it can help in the growth of Indian football, pushing it forward:

The Premier Futsal League has already roped in the likes of former Portugal star, Deco, who starred in club football for Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea and Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, to be part of the franchises.
The presence of such reputed, skillful footballers, along with probably the best futsal player of all-time, Alessandro Rosa Vieira, better known as Falcao, is a great incentive for young Indian talent to observe and learn from.
What better chance to learn and hone their skills than in the presence of stalwarts of the game, who were known to be some of the most skillful and composed on the ball during their time.
