Confederations Cup

From Academic Kids

(Redirected from FIFA Confederations Cup)

The FIFA Confederations Cup is a football (soccer) tournament for national teams, held every two years by FIFA. It is contested by the winners of each of the six FIFA confederation championships, (CAF, CONMEBOL, UEFA, AFC, OFC, CONCACAF) along with the FIFA World Cup champion and the host country, to bring the number of teams up to eight.

The first tournament was held in Saudi Arabia in 1992, and was known as the King Fahd Cup, named after King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. In 1997, FIFA upgraded the status of the competition, increased the number of teams to eight, and renamed it the FIFA Confederations Cup. In 2001, it was hosted by South Korea and Japan as a warmup for the Template:Wc, and this precedent continued in June 2005, when Template:Wc host Germany will host the 2005 edition.

The 2003 tournament was marred by tragedy, when the Cameroon player Marc-Vivien Fo collapsed and died during the semi-final against Colombia.
