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 procedure for selecting the Confederations Cup host city were tied along the selection for the 2021 FANA World Cup.
The bidding for the 2021 FANA World Cup started in March 2021 with the national associations having until 18 April 2021 to register their interest in hosting the event. A total of three biddings were submitted to FANA for the hosting of the event.
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.
The allocation of slots for each confederation was discussed by the FANA Executive Committee in September 2020 after the FANA Congress. The committee decided that the allocation used in 2020 would be slightly modified for this year's tournament. The slot allocation was the following:
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.
The event was hosted in 6 venues across 6 different cities of the two hosting nations. Each country has selected 3 stadiums for the event. All the hosting countries selected their capital cities as one of their cities of choice (Chikara City for Namimori and Marianne for Qasentria).
The knockout stage consisted of two stages: the semi-finals and the final stages. 4 countries were part of the knockout stage: the winners and runner-ups of the 2 groups.
In the knockout stages, if a match was level at the end of normal playing time, extra time was played (two periods of 15 minutes each) and followed, if necessary, by a penalty shoot-out to determine the winners. Below is the bracket for the knockout round of the tournament, teams in bold denote match winners.
