Venues[edit]

Colombia presented the cities of Bogotá, Villavicencio, Bucaramanga, Cúcuta, Ibagué and Neiva as the venue cities, when they bid to host the tournament.[12] After an inspection meeting in October 2014, four stadiums were confirmed, with Neiva allowed an extension to finish works,[13] before being removed as a venue later that month.[14]

Confirmation of the four host cities were presented to the Colombian Football Federation and FIFA on 11 November.[15] Medellín then replaced Villavicencio.[16] A further inspection in January 2016 saw the removal of Ibagué as a host, meaning half of the cities in the initial bids proposal are confirmed, with the three remaining cites scheduled to accommodate two groups per stadia.[17][18]

Emblem[edit]

The official emblem was unveiled on 29 September 2015.[20]

Mascot[edit]

The official mascot was launched on 19 April 2016.[21]

Draw[edit]

The official draw was held on 19 May 2016, 18:00 COT (UTC−5), at the Plaza Mayor Conference Centre in Medellín.[22][23][24] The teams were seeded based on their performances in previous FIFA Futsal World Cups and confederation tournaments, with the hosts Colombia automatically seeded and assigned to position A1. Moreover, for ticket sales reasons, the hosts and the top two teams (Colombia, Brazil and Spain) were spread across the three venues for the group matches: Cali (Groups A and C), Medellín (Groups B and F) and Bucaramanga (Groups D and E). Teams of the same confederation could not meet in the group stage, except that there were one group with two UEFA teams.[25]

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4

Officials[edit]

Squads[edit]

Each team must name a squad of 14 players (two of whom must be goalkeepers) by the FIFA deadline.[26]

Group stage[edit]

The match schedule was officially confirmed on 5 February 2016, a week after the removal of Ibagué from the host cities.[27]

The top two teams of each group and the four best third-placed teams advance to the round of 16. The rankings of teams in each group are determined as follows:[26]

  1. points obtained in all group matches;
  2. goal difference in all group matches;
  3. 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 are determined as follows:

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

All times are local, COT (UTC−5).[28]
