The 10,700-capacity Pabellón Príncipe Felipe was the venue for the LNFS Spanish Futsal Cup finals in 1991, 1993 and 2006. It opened in 1990 and is the home of basketball's Basket Zaragoza.

As well as hosting basketball's European Champions Cup (now EuroLeague) Final Four in 1990 and 1995, the arena has staged sports including boxing, handball, ice skating, martial arts and tennis, plus concerts from the likes of David Bowie and Bob Dylan.

Since the introduction of the four-team UEFA Futsal Cup finals in 2007, this will be the fourth event to take place in Spain after Murcia (2007), Lleida (2012) and Guadalajara (2016). Other venues have been Moscow (2008), Ekaterinburg (2009), Lisbon (2010 and 2015), Almaty (2011 and 2017), Tbilisi (2013) and Baku (2014).
