A futsal court pitch is made of wood, artificial material, or a surface similar to it, though any flat, smooth, and non-abrasive material may be used. In international matches, a futsal court pitch’s length is typically between 38 and 42 meters (42 and 46 yards), and its width is typically between 20 and 25 meters (22 and 27 yards).
As long as the length of the longer boundary lines (touchlines) is greater than the length of the shorter boundaries where the goals are positioned, it can be between 25 and 42 meters (27 and 46 yards) in length and between 16 and 25 meters (17 and 27 yards) in width for other matches (goal lines).
An international futsal court is 40 by 20 meters (44 by 22 yards) in size.
The height of the ceiling must be at least 4 m (4 yds). In the center of each goal line is a rectangular goal.
The lower edge of the horizontal crossbar supported by the goal posts must be 2 m (2.2 yds) above the ground and the inner margins of the vertical goal posts must be 3 m (3 yds) apart.
On the rear of the goalposts and crossbar, hemp, jute, or nylon nets are fastened. The lowest portion of the netting is fastened to appropriate support, such as curved tubing.
The Futsal court goal has a depth of 1 m (3.3 ft) at the bottom and 80 cm (31 in) at the top.
The penalty area line designates the boundary of the penalty area. The goalkeeper is only permitted to touch the ball with his hands inside the penalty area. When it reaches the middle of the goalposts, the penalty mark is six meters from the goal line.
When it reaches the middle of the goalposts, the second penalty mark is 10 meters (11 yards) from the goal line. If a player fouls inside the penalty area, they will receive a penalty kick from the penalty spot.
The free kick is taken from the second penalty mark, and any standard team handball pitch for futsal, including goals and floor markings, may be used. The second penalty spot is used if a player commits his team’s sixth foul in the opposing team’s half of his half, in the area bordered by the halfway line and an imaginary line parallel to the halfway line passing through the second penalty mark.
