UEFA Women's Futsal EURO holders Spain will take on Ukraine in Sunday's final at Főnix Arena, Debrecen.

Spain will be targeting a third straight title, having won the previous editions in 2019 and 2022, both times beating hosts Portugal in Gondomar, and this time they overcame their neighbours in the semis. Ukraine came fourth in 2019 and took bronze the next time out, but have now made a first final after eliminating hosts Hungary.

These teams met three times in 2022. Spain won two away friendlies in January, 7-0 and 3-1, and then beat Ukraine 9-0 in the EURO semi-finals last July in Gondomar, Portugal.
