On 4 April 2017 the UEFA Executive Committee agreed a revamp of their futsal competitions – including the launch of a first-ever UEFA Women's Futsal EURO.

The competition was to be held every two years, with a four-team final tournament. When the first draw was made on 5 July 2018, 23 nations had entered the inaugural edition, with Northern Ireland taking part before even making their men's Futsal EURO debut. Spain emerged as the first champions, beating hosts Portugal in the first final in February 2019 in Gondomar, with Russia taking bronze ahead of Ukraine.
