The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 10th edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup, will be held between 17 June and 2 July 2017,[1] as a prelude to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The host will be Russia as announced on 2 December 2010.[2] Brazil are the three-time defending champions, although they failed to qualify for the tournament as they lost to Paraguay on penalties in the quarter finals of the 2015 Copa America.

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 will take part in any Confederations Cup. 2015 AFC Asian Cup winners Australia became the first team to qualify from multiple confederations, having previously represented the OFC in 1997, 2001 and 2005.

The title holders, Brazil, failed to qualify despite being the current champions and having held the FIFA Confederations Cup since 2005, following their loss on penalties to Paraguay in the quarterfinals of the 2015 Copa América. This will also mark the first time since the tournament's inception that Brazil will not participate (excluding the King Fahd Cup).
