The 2007 UEFA Futsal Championship was the sixth official edition of the UEFA-governed European Championship for national futsal teams. It was held in Portugal, between November 16 and November 25, 2007, in two venues located in Porto's Greater Metropolitan AreaGondomar, Portugal and Santo Tirso Municipality. Eight teams competed in the final round, after a qualifying phase where seven teams managed to join the Portuguese hosts.

Spain, the 2000 FIFA Futsal World Championship and 2004 FIFA Futsal World Championship winners, successfully defended their European crown and added a fourth continental title to their record, by defeating Italy 3-1, in a reprise of the last FIFA Futsal World Championship final.

Bids

The Portuguese bid was selected during a meeting of UEFA's Executive Committee, on April 19, 2005, in Tallinn, Estonia. The bid was picked ahead of two other entries from the Netherlands (Eindhoven and Maastricht) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo), which had been previously shortlisted from nine preliminary bids.[1]

Venues

The bid's proposed main venue was to be the 4,500-seated Rosa Mota Pavilion, in the heart of Porto, and a second venue would be located in the neighbouring Matosinhos municipality. However, on August 14, 2006 the tournament's main venue was switched to the future 3,800-seated arena in the Gondomar municipality — the Pavilhão Multiusos de Gondomar "Coração de Ouro" (English: Gondomar's Multi-Purpose Pavilion "Heart of Gold".[2] The second venue was also changed to Santo Tirso's Pavilhão Desportivo Municipal (English: Municipal Sports Pavilion).
