The 2021 UEFA Futsal Champions League finals, an eight-team knockout event involving the round of 16 winners, will be played at Arena Zagreb in the Croatian capital from 28 April to 3 May.

Unlike in previous years, since the four-team finals format was introduced in 2006/07, this showpiece is not being held in the country of one of the qualified clubs (as would have been the case in 2020 before the switch to Barcelona).

Venue: Arena Zagreb

Located in the south-west of Croatia's capital, Arena Zagreb opened on 27 December 2008 with a handball international between Croatia and Russia, in time for the following month's World Men's Handball Championship. It was the venue for UEFA Futsal EURO 2012 and the semi-final between Russia and hosts Croatia was watched by 14,300 fans, a record for any UEFA futsal fixture.

Part of a huge complex including a cinema and shopping centre, Arena Zagreb's award-winning design boasts an unusual roof structure similar to a suspension bridge, while the semi-translucent exterior allows for spectacular light effects. Arena Zagreb events have included many major concerts, the 2016 Davis Cup final plus major fixtures in handball, basketball and ice hockey.
