Associations wishing to host a mini-tournament must notify the UEFA administration in writing on the relevant form by the entry deadline.


In principle, for the preliminary round, the UEFA administration decides on the mini-tournament hosts before the corresponding draw, according to the following principles:

  1. If there are more associations interested in hosting a mini-tournament than there are mini-tournaments to allocate, the following criteria apply:

    • quality of the infrastructure (e.g. halls);

    • travel distances;

    • promotional concept;

    • previous experience as a host;

    • development of futsal.

  2. If there are fewer associations interested than there are mini-tournaments to allocate, the UEFA administration identifies potential hosts and designates them, again applying the above-mentioned criteria.


Should it not be possible to designate all mini-tournament hosts before the draw, the associations in the group(s) concerned must agree, within a set deadline after the draw, which of them will host the mini-tournament(s) in question. If the associations cannot agree, the UEFA administration will conduct a draw for this purpose.
