The competition was to be held every two years, with an eight-team final tournament. Thirty-five nations entered the first draw on 1 November 2018, with Latvia picked to host the the inaugural finals in Riga in September 2019. It followed in the footsteps of the experimental UEFA Under-21 Futsal Tournament, held in 2008 and won by Russia in St Petersburg.
