Pop-up Futsal

Futsal pop up pitch in downtown Raleigh with a soccer ball in the center

The Bucy Foundation is partnering with Raleigh Parks to host a pop-up mini pitch in Dorothea Dix Park.  The pop-up first appeared in Downtown Raleigh at City Plaza this past summer. Come out and play at Dix Park from October 11 - November 18, 2021.

Futsal (micro-soccer ) is a fast-paced ball sport similar to soccer but typically played on a small, hard surface court.  Games are played between two teams of five, including a goalkeeper for each side. Players use a smaller, harder, low-bounce ball to score goals. Futsal is a game that outdoor soccer players around the globe play to refine and maintain their ball control skills.
