The size of a soccer ball does not depend on whether the game is played indoors or outdoors. In fact, it depends on how old the players are. If the player is approx. 4-8 years old they use a size 3, if they are approx. 8-12 years old they use a size 4, and if the player is 12+ they use a size 5, an adult size ball.
