The 2020 futsal world championship will be played in Lithuania from September 12 to October 4, the FIFA Council meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, announced today.

Lithuania will take part in the competition for the first time as an organizing country after failing the last eight World Cup finals by beating Japan, New Zealand and Iran, who were also in the running.

In the last edition of the competition, in 2016, the Portuguese national team, the current European champion of the sport, were eliminated by Argentina, who are the champions in the semi-finals and will compete in the qualifying phase.
