2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup

The FIFA Futsal World Cup is an international futsal competition contested by the senior men's national teams of the member associations of FIFA, the sport's global governing body. The first edition took place in 1989 in the Netherlands, and the tournament has been held every four years since 1992, on the even year between two football World Cups. The current champions are Portugal, who won their first world title after beating the 2016 defending champions Argentina in the final of the 2021 tournament in Lithuania.

All events prior to 2008 had been 16-team events. The first event featured 6 teams from Europe, 3 from South America, 2 from Africa, 2 from Asia, 2 from North and Central America, and 1 from Oceania. Since 2012, it includes 24 teams which split to a six group round-robin tournament, with four teams in each group. The top two teams in each group, together with the 4 highest-ranked third-place finishers, advanced to a sixteen team knockout final series.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^
    At the 2021 edition, in accordance with a ban by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and a decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the team from Russia was not permitted to use the Russian name, flag, or anthem; it participated in the World Cup as "the team of the Russian Football Union (RFU)", and used the flag of the Russian Olympic Committee.[2] For the purpose of continuity in this article, the results of the RFU team in 2021 are considered as de facto results of the Russian national team.
