Planet Futsal Limited is Abuja’s first 5-a-side football pitches centre. We specialize in the provision of small-sided football playing services. Our facility currently consists of three 5-a-side pitches, a 7-a-side pitch, ample parking space, and changing rooms.
All our pitches are floodlit, enabling night time play. Our pitches are caged with no throw-ins, corner kicks or goal kicks, making the game almost non-stop!
5-a-side football is a variation of football which is played on a smaller enclosed pitch, with each team fielding 5 players. With the small caged-pitch, players are constantly placed in demanding decision-making situations, requiring quick thinking and creative solutions.
“It’s the best bits of the 11-a-side game gently distilled down for our enjoyment, with a focus on passing, dribbling, shooting and keeping possession. Every player is involved and everyone gets more action.”
Because you’re constantly involved when you’re playing 5-a-side, and you’re required to repeatedly perform bursts of high-intensity exercise, your fitness levels improve quicker than most other forms of exercise. The scientifically proven health benefits for you are numerous:
- Your blood pressure is reduced
- Your resting heart rate is improved
- You shed excess body fat and cholesterol
- Your muscles and bones are strengthened, in the process improving your postural balance.
It all boils down to the simple fact that 5-a-side is more intense, keeps you more engaged and gives you more action (especially those all-important touches on the ball) – and all this while enjoying yourself!
