The Sweden national futsal team represents Sweden in international futsal competitions and is controlled by the Swedish Football Association. The team played their first official match in December 2012 against France in Gothenburg.[2] One month later, Sweden played their first competitive games and took three impressive victories in the qualification for the 2014 European Championship.[3]

History[edit]

In 2005, an unofficial Swedish national team played a mini-tournament in Teheran against Iran and Japan. The games were sanctioned by FIFA, but the Swedish Football Association (SvFF) has not recognized these games as official. The unofficial national team has also played matches against Catalonia, which were sanctioned by the rival of FIFA, Asociación Mundial de Fútbol de Salón (AMF). In 2010, SvFF started a two-year-long process to boot a national team. Per Broberg was hired as coach, and on December 11, 2012, an official Swedish national team played their first game in front of their home crowd in Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg.[4]

Tournament records[edit]

Sweden made their debut in an international competition in the 2014 UEFA Futsal Championship qualifying in Andorra in January 2013.
