HistoryEdit

The first tournament was held in Spain in 1996 with only six teams. The tournament was expanded to eight teams in 1999 and held every two years, and further to 12 teams in 2010.

After 2018, the tournament will be expanded to 16 teams, but held every four years, i.e., no tournament will be held in leap years (e.g., 2020) when the FIFA Futsal World Cup is being played, with the first 16-team tournament to be held in 2022 and will take place in Netherlands.[1]
