Futsal Boom


Futsal (5-a-side Football / Soccer) is undergoing another boom in Japan ahead of the launch of the Japan Futsal League this Autumn.
Luxury indoor courts are being constructed, such as this one in Osaki: the “VIP Court”. Last night we payed 2,300Yen each (20USD) for 2.5 hours and there were about 50 of us there (5 teams in a Mini-League Tournament).
The economics of the game suit Tokyo perfectly: lots of people crammed into a small indoor space and paying high fees. Anyway, it was a good laugh and we won, so I can’t complain.
