The 2021 FANA Confederations Cup was the third FANA Confederations Cup, the annual international men's football championship contested by the national football teams of the member associations of FANA. The 8 competing teams were selected to be either the current World Cup Champions or one of the seven Regional Cup winners.

The members of FANA started voting on the hosts of the event on 13 June 2021. The results were unveiled on 23 June 2021, with the Namisentrian bid securing the hosting rights for the event, while the Ximbalan/Ulikanan bid came in second.

Draw[edit]

The draw took place on X July 2021, in Chikara City, Namimori. All 8 participating teams were drawn into the 2 groups for the group stage based on the 4 pots that they were divided into. Due to the host countries not taking part into the competition (unless they would win their regional cup, which is Qasentria's case), Group A was drawn to be held in Qasentria and Group B in Namimori.

Pot 1 Pot 2
