The beautiful Kazan is dressed in a colourful FIFA Confederations Cup look: everything in this 1,000-year-old ancient Russian city is ready for the biggest milestone so far ahead of the Tournament of Champions. 

On Saturday 26 November, the Official Draw for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 will take place in Russia’s unofficial third capital. One day before the high-profile cast take the stage, set-up at the Kazan Tennis Academy, media had a chance to have a first glimpse of what to expect from the show. 

The draw procedures were explained by FIFA Competitions and Events Chief Officer Colin Smith, who will conduct the Draw together with FIFA Deputy Secretary General for Football Zvonimir Boban.  

“All the teams that Russia will host here next year have qualified for the FIFA Confederations Cup because they won a top-level international competition. When you bring together that much winning mentality into the same tournament, you can’t expect anything other than some great matches.”
