The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 10th edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup, is expected to be held in June 2017, as a prelude to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The host will be Russia as announced on 2 December 2010.[1] Brazil are the four-time defending champions.

Since the host country, Russia and the 2014 World Cup Champions, Germany, are both from UEFA, and a third team will qualify from UEFA Euro 2016, this will be the first time that three teams from the same confederation take part in a Confederations Cup.
