For the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification, there were two scheduled inter-confederation play-offs to determine the final two qualification spots to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Format[edit]

The four teams from the four confederations (AFC, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and OFC) were drawn into two ties at the World Cup Preliminary Draw at the Marina da Glória in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 30 July 2011. This was different from previous editions, where the matchups were decided by FIFA beforehand and no draw was held for the inter-confederation play-offs.

In each tie, the two teams played a two-legged home-and-away series. The two winners, decided on aggregate score, qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
