Halls must be in good condition in terms of both their playing surface and their facilities. They must fully comply with the FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game and conform to the safety and security regulations of the competent civil authorities.


UEFA recommends a wooden playing surface.


The seating capacity of halls used for matches should be at least 500 in the preliminary round and 1,000 in the main round. The seating capacity of the hall used for the final tournament must be at least 2,500.


The goal nets must be attached in such a way that the ball cannot rebound out of the goal. If necessary, an additional net may be placed inside the goal no less than 70cm from the crossbar.


Temporary stands may not be used.


Halls used must be reserved exclusively for the mini-tournament.


The host association must provide pitch access that guarantees the safe entry and exit of players and match officials.


Each host association is responsible for:

  1. inspecting every hall concerned and submitting the corresponding online form confirming to the UEFA administration that each hall meets the criteria laid out in the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations ;

  2. confirming to the UEFA administration that the hall, including its facilities (emergency lighting system, first aid facilities, protection against intrusion by spectators into the playing area, etc.), has been thoroughly inspected by the competent public authorities and that the latter have confirmed in writing that the hall meets all the safety requirements laid down by the applicable national law.


The UEFA administration makes decisions on each hall on the basis of the above form and confirmation, and any other information gathered by UEFA. Such decisions are final.
