The Brazil national futsal team represents Brazil during international futsal competitions. It is under the direction of the Brazilian Futsal Confederation or Confederação Brasileira de Futebol de Salão. The team is considered to be the strongest in the world earning a record three straight championships in the FIFA Futsal World Cup. Brazil also holds a record twelve championship wins in the South American Futsal Championship also known as the Copa América – FIFA Futsal and five wins in the Taça América de Futsal. As of April 2016, Brazil is ranked first in the Futsal World Ranking. Brazil has played in all FIFA Futsal World Cups and has finished in the top three places in all seven tournaments.

History[edit]

FIFA Era[edit]

Ever since the early days of the FIFA Futsal World Cup, Brazil have been a force to be reckoned with on the international scene. The Auriverde claimed the trophy at the first three editions of the showpiece event, at Netherlands 1989, Hong Kong 1992 and Spain 1996, but were outstripped by their futsal bête noire, Spain. La Furia Roja proved to be too strong for Brazil in the Final of Guatemala 2000 and at the semi-final stage of Chinese Taipei 2004, where they went on to take the title once more. Brazil won their 4th and 5th titles in Brazil 2008 and Thailand 2012, beating Spain in the finals of these two editions respectively. They are known for defeating East Timor 76–0 in the 2006 Lusophony Games in Macau.
