The 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 11th edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup, is expected to be held in 2021, as a prelude to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
As is customary, the tournament was originally to be held in Qatar — host country of the 2022 World Cup, as announced on 2 December 2010. However, concerns surrounding Qatar's high temperatures during the summer period (which also led to calls for the World Cup to be moved from its traditional June/July scheduling to November/December) resulted in FIFA officially announcing on 25 February 2015 that it would move the 2021 Confederation Cup to another country of the Asian Football Confederation, so it could still be held during the traditional window of June/July 2021 without interrupting domestic leagues. As compensation, another FIFA tournament—potentially the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup, would be held in Qatar in November/December 2021 as the test event for the 2022 World Cup.
