On Friday 27 July, the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions announced the match schedule for the women’s and men’s Youth Olympic futsal tournaments to be held in Buenos Aires on 7-18 October 2018.

A total of 48 matches will be played – 24 in each tournament – with two venues hosting the competitions: Futsal Main Stadium (Tecnopolis), where the four medal matches will take place, and the CeNARD.

Both the women’s and the men’s tournaments will get under way on 7 October, a day after the start of the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018. The women’s final takes place on 17 October and the men’s a day later.

Twenty teams will take part in the futsal competitions – ten in the women's and ten in the men's – though the rules dictate that countries cannot field teams in both tournaments. The only nation guaranteed a place so far is Argentina – in their capacity as hosts – in the men’s competition.
