Latvia will stage the first UEFA European Under-19 Futsal Championship final tournament from 8 to 14 September 2019 following a decision by the UEFA Executive Committee in Nyon, Switzerland.
The bid from the Latvian Football Federation (LFF) was selected ahead of one from the Georgian Football Federation (GFF). The proposed venue for the eight-team event is the 9,975-capacity Arena Riga, and it will be the first UEFA final tournament of any kind held in Latvia.
