The 808Futsal Indoor Soccer Facility at the Kapolei Business Park in Leeward Oahu, was a design-build project developed in conjunction with Swinerton Builders. It is the first futsal facility to be built in Hawaii. The two story, 63,830 square foot air-conditioned building contains three courts with bleacher viewing areas, pro shop, snack bar with commercial kitchen, restrooms, player changing rooms, storage and offices. The two courts located on the first floor are separated by netting, so that both are visible to spectators and staff. The third court and snack bar are located on the second floor and overlook the first floor courts.
The sport of Futsal was started in Uruguay in 1930. Its name, which comes from the Spanish fútbol sala or “room football,” is a modified form of soccer played with five players per side on a smaller, hard surface court (132 feet by 76 feet) that is typically indoors.
A 430-panel rooftop photovoltaic system was installed under a separate contract. Parking for 92 vehicles was provided on site, with additional parking available at the inline hockey arena across the street. Both facilities are owned by Richard Pentecost.
