The AMF Futsal World Championships (previously called the FIFUSA Futsal World Championships) is the international championships for futsal, the indoor version of football organized by FIFUSA (1971–2002) and AMF (2003–present).

The world championship tournament was held every three years until 2003, and now is played every four years. The first event was held in 1982 in Brazil. The South American teams have won most of the championships, with Paraguay as the most successful team with 3 titles.

Since 2008, a women's tournament is held. As of 2014, only two tournaments has been played: the 2008 edition in Catalonia and the 2013 edition in Colombia.
