Futsal is on the rise, with more than 300 youngsters swelling the Edgar Centre for the past two days.
The Otago schools tournament attracted 40 teams, mostly from schools in Dunedin.
Competition was fierce with the top two sides in each grade earning the right to compete in the national schools tournament in Timaru in June.
Organiser Sam Buxton said Sport Otago's decision to help promote the game in the region's schools has created extra interest in the game and Buxton believes the sport will take off as a result.
"If it is big now; it is only going to get bigger," he said.
"It is a fast-paced game and it doesn't take up too much time.
"There is not much to it. It is just fun."
Futsal is a five-a-side game of football, usually played indoors and with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular football.
