TG Futsal Club

Tokyo Gaijins organizes pick-up futsal games regularly on weekends and some week nights. We play 5 on 5 (including the goalie) pick-up futsal games at some outdoor courts with artificial turf in central Tokyo. We have over 1,000 members/subscribers on our mailing list. 80% of the players are foreigners from all over the globe and about 20% are Japanese. An average of around 12~18 players participate every session including 1~2 female players. Reasonable skill level is a MUST!

Come play futsal with us!
