Serbia followed in the footsteps of previous Futsal EURO hosts Belgium (2014), Croatia (2012), Hungary (2010), Portugal (2007), Czech Republic (2005), Italy (2003), Russia (2001) and Spain (the first UEFA European Futsal Championship of 1999 and also the 1996 UEFA European tournament). Slovenia will stage the 2018 finals in Ljubljana.
