The 2021 UEFA Futsal Champions League finals, an eight-team knockout event involving the round of 16 winners, will be played at Krešimir Ćosić Arena in the Croatian city of Zadar 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).

Zadar on the Dalmatian coast, Croatia’s oldest continuously inhabited city, is home to Krešimir Ćosić Arena, which opened in May 2008. It has staged Davis Cup tennis events and games in the 2009 World Men’s Handball Championship.
The arena is home to basketball’s KK Zadara and is named after a former player for the club, who was capped a world record 303 times for Yugoslavia, helping them to win two FIBA World Cups, and was later Croatia’s deputy ambassador in Washington DC.
