There is less than one month to go until Russia face New Zealand in the Opening Match of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 at the Saint Petersburg Stadium. But before a ball is kicked across its surface on 17 June, Igor Stravinsky’s "The Firebird" will sound across the stadium, signalling the beginning of the quest to be crowned winner of the Tournament of Champions.

The Opening Ceremony of the FIFA Confederations Cup will take place around two hours before kick-off (which is at 18.00 local time) and will last about 20 minutes. The colourful presentation will tell viewers about Russia’s traditions, history, culture and nature, as well as more specifically about the four cities hosting the tournament: Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi and Moscow.
