Porto's Pavilhão Multiusos de Gondomar will host the first UEFA Women's Futsal EURO finals in February, following a decision by the UEFA Executive Committee in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) beat off a bid from the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to host the event. Portugal also staged the finals of the first UEFA Futsal Cup in 2002.
