The 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifiers for UEFA was a beach soccer tournament played in Bibione, Italy from July 11–18, 2010, which determined the four teams that qualified to the 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Ravenna, Italy. All matches were played at a temporary stadium on the beach at Piazzale Zenith in Bibione. The draw for the group stage of the competition was made at the end of June, 2010.[1]

The nations who reached the semi-finals of the tournament achieved qualification for the world cup who were Russia, Ukraine, Switzerland and Portugal. This meant that Spain, who won the 2008 qualifying championship and who came second in 2009, did not even manage to qualify from this year's event for the next world cup, meaning the 2011 world cup will be the first time Spain have not competed in 12 world cups, since the 1997 Beach Soccer World Cup. The overall winners of the tournament, and surprise winners were the Ukraine.

By the end of the tournament, over 82 000 people had attended the games at Piazzale Zenith, and over 200 000 people watched the games online.[2]

Participating teams[edit]

27 teams confirmed their participation in the competition, the highest ever amount for a world cup qualifier, with several newcomers, showing the ever growing popularity of the sport:[3]

Group stage[edit]

The 27 teams were drawn into 7 groups of 4 teams and one group of 3 teams.[4] The group games took place over a period of three days. The top two teams in the groups automatically qualified for the knockout stage of the tournament. Then, the two best performing teams who finished third in their group were chosen to play in the knockcout stage, to make up the numbers.
