From Melbourne to Lisbon, the eyes of the footballing world will be focused on Kazan this Saturday (26 November) for the Official Draw for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, when the competing nations will discover the road to the coveted title of the Tournament of Champions. 

This 1000-year-old ancient Russian city – thought of as the country's third capital after Moscow and Saint Petersburg – will be under the spotlight frequently in the next two years, as Kazan will host four matches at the Confederations Cup in 2017 and six games at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.

A sporting buzz is far from a rarity in Kazan. More than a million people representing hundreds of different ethnic groups peacefully co-exist in this cultural, religious and linguistic melting pot, where mosques stand side by side with orthodox cathedrals. The majority of this mix is united by a love for sport.
