Format
The seven lowest-ranked entrants in the UEFA futsal national-team coefficients enter the preliminary round, where they will be drawn into one group of four and another of three, played as one-venue mini-tournaments in January.
The two preliminary round group winners join the 26 higher-ranked qualifying entrants in the main round. They will be drawn into seven groups of four teams (in the same ceremony as the preliminary round draw), to be played in March.
The seven main-round group winners will join whoever is selected as hosts out of Georgia or Latvia in the finals next September.
In the finals, two groups of four will be formed, with the top two in each progressing to the semi-finals.
