Elite round hosts picked

FC Litija, FK EP Chrudim, holders Kairat Almaty and Sporting Clube de Portugal have been picked as mini-tournament hosts for the elite round in November.

FC Litija, FK EP Chrudim, holders Kairat Almaty and Sporting Clube de Portugal have been picked as mini-tournament hosts for the UEFA Futsal Cup elite round, with the draw streamed live by UEFA.com from Nyon at 14.00CET on Friday 18 October.

The 12 teams that progressed from the six main round groups join the four highest-seeded clubs that were given byes – Kairat, former winners MFK Dinamo and FC Barcelona, and 2011 runners-up Sporting – in the four mini-tournaments between 19 and 24 November.

In the draw, no teams from the same main round section can meet, and the four clubs pre-selected as hosts will be picked separately though maintaining the seeding as communicated in the draw procedure next week. There is no country protection, so Tulpar Karagandy could be draw in Kairat's group.

The four elite round winners will progress to the knockout finals in late April, with the hosts picked from among their number at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Bilbao on 12 December.
