The Egyptian national futsal team represents Egypt during international futsal competitions. It is governed by the Egyptian Football Association and is one of the strongest teams in Africa having won the Africa Futsal Cup of Nations a record three times.

Egypt has reached the FIFA Futsal World Cup 6 times. Egypt attended their first FIFA Futsal World Cup in 1996, when they achieved the first victory for Africa in the competition's history by beating Australia 8–2. Four years later, they earned Africa a quarter-final berth with notable victories over the likes of teams like Uruguay and Russia. Although a draw with Argentina would have granted them a place in the semis, they lost 3–4 to the South Americans.

The Pharaohs appeared for the third successive time in Chinese Taipei and despite a first-round exit, they made their mark with the biggest margin of victory in the tournament, 12–0 over the hosts.[2]
