Draw pairs Dinamo and Benfica

UEFA Futsal Cup holders MFK Dinamo Moskva will begin their title defence with a group featuring the might of SL Benfica after the Elite round draw was made.

UEFA Futsal Cup holders MFK Dinamo Moskva will begin their title defence against SL Benfica, Luparense Calcio A5 and KMF Municipium Casino Pljevlja after the Elite round draw was made today.

Final four
The winners of the four groups played next month will progress to April's final four, Dinamo having won the inaugural showpiece event last year in Murcia. They are one of four teams starting their campaign in the Elite round as top seeds, with 12 sides having progressed from last week's Main round.

April finale
Another of the seeds, ElPozo Murcia FS, who finished third last season as hosts, are back as Spanish champions and will take on HMNK Gospić, KMF Marbo Beograd and Clearex Chorzów in Group A. MFK Viz-Sinara Ekaterinburg, making their European debut as Russian runners-up behind Dinamo last season, will stage Group D and play Hapoel Ironi Rishon Lezion, SK Energia Lviv and CIP Deva. The other top ranked club, Kairat Almaty, are up against Futsal Topsport Antwerpen, FK Era-Pack Chrudim and Slov-Matic Fofo Bratislava in Group C. The final four will be played from 26-28 April and hosted by one of the qualifiers.
