The study is based on an assignment from Vasterbotten Football Association that because of poor
participation in futsal activities wants to find out what clubs, the coaches and players in Vasterbotten
think of futsal. The aim is to find out the opinions on futsal and what these opinions are based on. In
addition, a literature survey to examine how sports grows and becomes established. Data were collected
through interviews in major cities and its surrounding areas in Vasterbotten. The coaches and clubs
opinions of futsal does not differ very much they both find that futsal is a fast, fun sport but in the end still
just a complement to football. The players in the study believed that it was the same as indoor football
and that they would have liked to have played futsal more than they do now. It did not differ significantly
between the opinions of the interviewees. To establish a sport there are certain elements that may affect
the development of a sport to different degrees. It is still sports culture which is the most important piece,
because the prevailing culture in Sweden right now believes that futsal is a complement to football this
cultural must change for futsal to successfully establish itself.
