On 8 April 2020, the Bureau of the FIFA Council approved an update to the Futsal Laws of the Game. The latest rules form the 2020/21 edition and came into force on 1 June 2020. Several of the adjustments reflect recent law changes in football. Competitions interrupted by Covid-19 can be completed in accordance with either the previous Futsal Laws of the Game or the new edition for 2020/21. Any friendly or warm-up games played prior to the resumption of a competition are permitted to use the laws that will be applied when the competition restarts, even if these warm-up matches take place after 1 June 2020. Women’s futsal is no longer considered as a separate category but instead has the same status as the men’s game. Meanwhile the new laws provide numerous flexible organisational options for futsal competitions involving youth players, older players, players with disabilities and at grassroots level. For example, goal sizes, pitch sizes, ball type, playing time and goalkeeper throws beyond the halfway line can also be adjusted to suit local circumstances and needs, as well as to promote creative futsal and the technical development of players.
