AMF (World Futsal Association) have been holding a Futsal World Cup Since 1982 and are the World Founding Futsal organisation, establishing in 1930 under the banner of FIFUSA.
The current World Cup holders are Paraguay who have won the title 3 times (1988, 2003, 2007) with Brazil claiming 2 titles in 1982 and 1985. No doubt both these sides will be teams to contest for the title again along with host Nation Colombia whi finished 3rd at the 2007 event.
Australia hosted the 1988 AMF Futsal World Cup, but this will be the first time a New Zealand side has been involved.

New Zealand Futsal Association is proud to be a part of the World Futsal Association and the Futsal World Cup
