The UEFA Futsal Euro 2014 was the ninth edition of the European Championship for men's national futsal teams organised by UEFA. It was hosted for the first time in Belgium, from 28 January to 8 February 2014, following a decision of the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2011.[2]

The final tournament was contested by twelve teams, eleven of which joined the hosts after overcoming a qualifying tournament. The matches were played in two venues in the city of Antwerp, the Lotto Arena (group stage) and the Sportpaleis (knockout stage). Television coverage was provided by Eurosport and Eurosport 2.

The defending champions, Spain, were beaten in the semifinals by Russia and thus failed to reach their fifth consecutive tournament final. In the decisive match, Italy defeated Russia 3–1 to win their second title.[3] Spain defeated Portugal 8–4 in the third place match to secure a ninth consecutive podium finish.[4] The top scorer of the tournament was Eder Lima of Russia, with eight goals.[5]

Group stage[edit]

In the group stage, a total of twelve matches (three matches per group) were played between 28 January and 2 February at a rate of two matches each day. The teams finishing in the top two positions in each of the four groups progressed to the knockout stage, while the third-placed team was eliminated from the tournament.

Tie-breaking

If two or more teams were equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following tie-breaking criteria were applied:[10]

  1. Higher number of points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question;
  2. Superior goal difference resulting from the matches played between the teams in question;
  3. Higher number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question.

If, after having applied criteria 1–3, teams still have an equal ranking, criteria 1–3 are reapplied to determine their final ranking. If this does not lead to a decision, the following criteria apply:

  1. Superior goal difference in all group matches;
  2. Higher number of goals scored in all group matches;
  3. Fair play ranking of the teams in question;
  4. Drawing of lots.

Knockout stage[edit]

The knockout stage matches, which includes quarter-finals, semi-finals, third place play-off and the final, will be played at the Sportpaleis arena. If a match is drawn after 40 minutes of regular play, an extra-time consisting of two five-minute periods is played. If teams are still leveled after extra-time, a penalty shoot-out is used to determine the winner. In the third place match, the extra-time is skipped and the decision goes directly to kicks from the penalty mark.[10]
