The first FIFA Futsal Women's World Cup will be played in 2025 in the Philippines, and European qualifying begins with October's main round, drawn at 14:15 CET on Thursday 30 May and streamed live.

European qualifying runs in two stages, played as one-venue mini-tournaments: main round and elite round.

In the main round, the 24 teams (all entrants apart from top seeds Portugal and Spain) are drawn into six groups of four.

Draw procedure

The 24 teams are split into four seeding positions based on their Women's Futsal National Team Coefficient ranking:

Position 1: Teams ranked 3 to 8
Position 2: Teams ranked 9 to 14
Position 3: Teams ranked 15 to 20
Position 4: Teams ranked 21 to 26

Four teams (Sweden, Czechia, Serbia and Moldova) have been pre-selected as hosts and will be drawn into Groups 1 to 4. Groups 5 and 6 will not have a host assigned, with the home team in those sections to be determined after the draw.

Pot 1 (hosts)
Sweden (seeding position 1)
Czechia (seeding position 2)
Serbia (seeding position 3)
Moldova (seeding position 4)

The hosts are drawn into Groups 1 to 4 and placed in the position corresponding to their coefficient ranking.

Pot 2 (seeding position 4)
Lithuania
France
Latvia
England
Norway

The five teams are drawn into position 4 from Groups 1 to 6, missing out the group which already has a host (Moldova) assigned to that position.

Pot 3 (seeding position 3)
Slovakia
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Kazakhstan
Northern Ireland
Gibraltar

The five teams are drawn into position 3 from Groups 1 to 6, missing out the group which already has a host (Serbia) assigned to that position.

Pot 4 (seeding position 2)
Croatia
Netherlands
Belarus
Belgium
Slovenia

The five teams are drawn into position 2 from Groups 1 to 6, missing out the group which already has a host (Czechia) assigned to that position.

Pot 5 (seeding position 1)
Ukraine
Hungary
Italy
Finland
Poland

The five teams are drawn into position 1 from Groups 1 to 6, missing out the group which already has a host (Sweden) assigned to that position.

Based on decisions taken by the UEFA Executive Committee, Belarus and Ukraine cannot be drawn into the same group. Should Ukraine be drawn into the group of Belarus, they will be moved to the next available group. Should this clash happen with the last two, the teams will simply be assigned to their appropriate groups.

  • In UEFA Women's Futsal EURO (all three editions of which have been won by Spain), Ukraine were fourth in 2019, third in 2022 and second in 2023.
  • Hungary also qualified in 2022 and 2023 for the four-time EURO finals (it will expand to eight for the next edition in 2027).
  • England, France and Norway will all be making their competitive debuts.

All mini-tournaments will be played between 15 and 20 October. The six group winners qualify for the elite round to join Portugal and Spain.

The elite round, drawn on 31 October and running from 18 to 23 March, will consist of two groups of four. The top two in each elite round group will qualify for the finals.
