In June 2021, the Plei App expanded into our 5th City, Dallas, Texas 🤠. Since August 2021, we have been hosting pickup games at City Futsal, and we are looking forward to continuing doing so for many years to come. As part of our new blog series, we will be highlighting all of our partner facilities in every region where Plei has touched down. 🛬
Upon entering, you’ll be immediately welcomed by three 5v5 fields (two outdoor turf fields and one indoor court for 5v5 futsal) and a spectacular view of downtown Dallas.

Take in the Dallas skyline while playing the game you love, and bring your friends along to share the experience. City Futsal is an iconic small-sided soccer facility not only because of their unique location on the outskirts of Downtown, but because they are a pioneer in futsal in the United States.
City Futsal was founded in 2011 by twin brothers Esteban and Manuel Mariel, who were US Soccer National Team pool players in the U-14 and U-16 categories.
Their original mission was as follows: to promote the growing game of futsal for all ages and levels.
With two generations of soccer involvement in the DFW area, a training staff with NCAA and US Futsal National Team experience and strong ties with one of the best clubs in Brazil, Santos FC, it’s safe to say that mission is all but complete.
For those that aren’t too familiar with futsal, it is the fast-growing indoor version of association football (soccer). It is played on a hard surface, similar to a basketball court, with modified rules compared to 11v11 outdoor soccer. A size 4 ball is used, among other differences. Futsal is officially sanctioned by football's international governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
Futsal continues to grow in popularity around the globe, and its developmental value is highly regarded and recognized as a powerful training vessel within the world of soccer.
City Futsal consider themselves trailblazers in the transformation of American club soccer, who are always going after challenging the status quo when it comes to the sports community, making sure all players and members play, train and compete well.
How exactly has City Futsal contributed to the growth of futsal in the country and promoted a healthy sports community within Dallas?
They emphasize heavily that they are a family company that values memorable quality experiences and relationships. They are also always looking to create spaces to provide fun and healthy small-sided soccer competitions and training opportunities for the local DFW community and amateur sports enthusiasts.
Speaking of small-sided soccer competitions, they host year round soccer and futsal leagues for kids and adults alike!
On top of that, City Futsal runs the FDSP (Futsal Development Soccer Program), a futsal academy that is considered a leader in the country and is also the first of its kind. It has been pretty successful too, as teams formed with academy players have 5 National Championships to their name (all this in the last two years!)
A quote from their website puts it best:
“City Futsal Sports Park is an urban venue that will bring together surrounding families and working adults to share experiences that matter and impact any discipline. Sports, health, lifestyle, entertainment, arts, education, business, and development. This ecosystem of ideas and shared experiences will improve and help foster quality relationships that strengthen the community.”
And the most important detail of all: City Futsal has a selection of snacks and drinks to enjoy before or after your game and a super comfortable seating area where your guests can watch you put on a masterclass pickup display, whether it's on hard court or turf.
