The FIFA Futsal World Cup is the international championship for futsal, an indoor version of association football.

The world championship tournament is held every four years, on the even year between two FIFA World Cups. The first event was held in 1989, the year FIFA became the world governing body of futsal. It was held in the Netherlands to commemorate the popularity of the game there. Through the 2008 World Cup, only two countries have taken the Futsal World Cup. Brazil winning the first three, defeating the host Spaniards in 1996 to win their third title, followed by Spain winning the next two, defeating Brazil in 2000, then Italy in 2004 in the first Futsal World Championship final that didn't feature Brazil. In 2008 Brazil became the first host country to win the Championship beating Spain in a penalty shootout. Brazil also won the 2012 competition, defeating Spain.

All events prior to the 2008 World Cup has been 16-team events. The first event featured 6 from Europe, 3 from South America, two from Africa, two from Asia, two from North and Central America, and one from Oceania. By 2004, the breakdown was Europe 5 teams, Asia 4 (including the hosts, competing as Chinese Taipei), South America 3, North and Central America 2, Africa and Oceania one each. The 2012 event included 24 teams, making it the largest group.

The 2012 edition of the event featured a six group round-robin tournament, with four teams in each group. The top two teams in each group, together with the 4 highest-ranked third place finishers, advanced to a sixteen team knockout final series.
