Gibraltar paired with France, Montenegro and San Marino in 2013/14 Futsal Euro Qualifying

In Gibraltar’s first participation in a UEFA recognised competition, the GFA were paired with France, Montenegro and San Marino in Group A of the 2013/14 UEFA European Futsal Championship Preliminary Qualifiers.

France, who will host all the games in Group A, to be held between the 22-27 January 2013, are currently ranked 45th* in world futsal, whilst Montenegro are ranked 68th* and San Marino are currently unranked*.

Should Gibraltar win their group, and progress to the next round, they’d compete in Group 1, where they would face Group Hosts Italy, Finland and Hungary. Italy, winners of the 2003 European Futsal Championships, are ranked 3rd in Futsal, Finland are ranked 55th*, and Hungary are ranked 29th*

  1. Really interesting to see Gib in UEFA competitions – shame they aren’t in the same group as England or Wales but hey ho. I don’t suppose there’s any news on a venue for the mini-tournament, is there? It’ll be in France somewhere and I’m presuming it’ll be held in only one place but I can’t find any info on whereabouts that might be.

    Looking forward to draws tomorrow for the U-17s and the U-19s!
