Serbia earned the last place at UEFA Futsal EURO 2022 with home and away victories against Belarus in the play-off.

While the eight group winners and six best runners-up from the qualifying group stage automatically earned their spots in the finals from 19 January to 6 February, the other two teams that finished second took each other on for the right to join them.

Serbia, who had the eighth-best record, hosted the first leg as decided by a draw made when the qualifying groups were set. Their victory takes them into Group A for the finals, meeting holders Portugal, Ukraine and hosts Netherlands in Amsterdam.
