q1What is Fan Futsal?
Fan Futsal is a fantasy soccer and social networking website focused on daily and weekly fantasy games. It’s a different way to play fantasy soccer – users select 5 clubs for their fantasy roster instead of individual athletes. Users then choose a formation and place their clubs into positions based on the formation they chose. Each position emphasizes different scoring elements, meaning that the number of goals a club scores will more positively impact the score of that club if you place them in an offensive position as compared to a defensive position. For more details, please see our How To Play page
q2How do I get started?
Getting started is as easy as clicking the Sign Up button and entering the information prompted on the screen. You can register even faster if you sign up via Facebook. Once logged in, you will be given 10,000 FFC (Fan Futsal Currency) so you can start entering competitions right away. Go to the Lobby page to start playing.

q4How is Fan Futsal different than other fantasy soccer platforms?
Fan Futsal is unique because of the revolutionary combination of simplification and strategy in one game, which attracts both diehard and casual soccer fans. Using teams instead of players to build the fantasy roster simplifies the fantasy experience because it is much easier to follow scores from multiple matches than it is to follow individual player statistics. And yet the game retains its strategic element because placing clubs in different positions emphasizes different scoring elements.
Additionally, by offering social features like messaging, friendship, and instant messaging (banter), we’re focused on building a community of passionate users unlike any other platform.
q5What are the types of fantasy games, tournaments, or competitions offered on Fan Futsal?
Currently, Fan Futsal offers daily and multi-day games with clubs from the top North American and European leagues. These games can include clubs from only one league or multiple leagues. Additionally, users are able to create their own public or private games with as many leagues as they’d like. The prize structures and maximum number of users in a competition vary depending on the game type. We will constantly be evaluating new, exciting game types to add to the site.
