The first competition organized was the European Championship that took place in Madrid in 1989. This kind of competition was first dominated by Iberian teams: Portugal won in 1989 and 1990 – in 1991 was also world-beater – and Spain in 1992. Afterwards it was dominated by Eastern teams: Slovakia won in 1995, Russia in 1998 and Belarus in 2004. FEF organizes the events of AMF in Europe instead of UEFS since 2017.
In 1991, UEFS organized the first tournament for club’s teams: the European Champion Clubs’ Cup, which takes place regularly every year in a different site, except for 2000.
