HistoryEdit

An informal form of futsal is being played in the Philippines as early as the 1960s to the 1980s, which is usually played as part of a cross training for footballers during rainy weather using regular association football rules. It was only in the late 1990s, that official futsal international tournaments were held and during this time the Philippine national team is already playing international friendlies under coaches Noel Casilao and Hans Smit.[2]
