History of the Women's National Team

From 2015 to today

Nazionale A femminile Futsal 2015

The Futsal Women’s National Team was officially founded in January 2015. The Men’s Coach Roberto Menichelli was named Coach. The team first appeared on 25 June 2015 at the Foro Italico in Rome, beating Hungary 5-0. That magical night goes down as a historic night in Italian Futsal with over 4,000 people in attendance at the Stadio Pietrangeli. Two days later, the Azzurre repeated the feat by beating the Hungarians 4-0 at the PalaRoma di Montesilvano.


In November of the same year, the Azzurre played their first away game against Ukraine in Lviv. A year after the first match, the Foro Italico and the Forum di Assago once again hosted Italy for two matches against Slovakia.

Francesca Salvatore became the Coach and UEFA announced the first European Championship as part of their aim to further promote the women’s game.

Following friendlies against Iran and Ukraine, Italy were placed alongside the hosts Spain, Poland and Romania for the Final Four in Leganes. Italy finished second but failed to qualify for the competition in Gondomar, Portugal.
