Venues[edit]

The matches were originally due to take place across four venues.[6] Due to construction delays and failure to meet the security requirement, early matches scheduled at the Bangkok Futsal Arena were moved to the Indoor Stadium Huamark.[7] After the final inspection on 5 November, FIFA announced that the Bangkok Futsal Arena had not sufficiently met the criteria. The two quarter-final matches would be played at Nimibutr Stadium, while Indoor Stadium Huamark would host the semifinals and the final.[8]

Draw[edit]

The official draw for the World Cup was held at the St. Regis Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand on 24 August 2012.[12]

The 24 teams were divided in six groups, each group with four teams.[13]

First round[edit]

The group winners and runners up along with the 4 highest rank third places advanced to the round of 16.[14]

The ranking of each team in each group will be determined as follows:

  1. greatest number of points obtained in all group matches;
  2. goal difference in all group matches;
  3. greatest number of goals scored in all group matches;

If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their rankings will be determined as follows:

  1. greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  2. goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams concerned;
  3. greater number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned;
  4. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.

All times are Thailand Standard Time (UTC+07:00).
