The first European qualifying draw for the new FIFA Futsal Women's World Cup involved 23 of the 25 UEFA entrants playing in six groups.

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, for which six groups have been formed.

Draw procedure

The 23 teams were 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 25

Five teams (Sweden, Czechia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Moldova) were pre-selected as hosts and drawn into Groups 1 to 5. Group 6 did 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)
Bosnia and Herzegovina (position 3)
Serbia (seeding position 3)
Moldova (seeding position 3)

The hosts were drawn into Groups 1 to 5 and placed in the position corresponding to their coefficient ranking. Group 6 did not have a host assigned and one will be determined after the draw from among the teams.

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

The five teams were drawn into position 4 from Groups 1 to 5.

Pot 3 (seeding position 3)
Slovakia
Kazakhstan
Northern Ireland

The three teams were drawn into position 3 from Groups 1 to 6, missing out the groups which already had a host (Serbia, Moldova or Bosnia and Herzegovina) assigned to that position.

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

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

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

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

Based on decisions taken by the UEFA Executive Committee, Belarus and Ukraine could not be drawn into the same group. Ukraine were drawn into the group of Belarus, but then moved to the next available group. Should this clash have happened with the last two groups, the teams would simply be assigned to their appropriate groups.
