Create a futsal arena

And the mayor could back a new arena for futsal - a five-a-side version of football - to help people get fit, the report says.

It states: “Futsal – an FA-approved version of association football played on a smaller field and mainly indoors – is the fastest growing indoor sport in the world. But Birmingham does not have a dedicated futsal arena.

“In most of Europe, the Middle East and South America, Futsal is a professional sport.

“Futsal has the potential to be huge, in the same way that the popularity of 20/20 cricket has exploded and overtaken the original test game. The FA is now looking to take it to a professional level in England, which means there is a great opportunity for the West Midlands to lead the way.”
