This is the new FIFA Confederations Cup logo for next year's tournament.

Drawing inspiration from the shape of the Confed Cup trophy, the new FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup logo boasts a similar design as the 2018 World Cup logo that was already revealed in October 2014. The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup also uses the custom typeface that was created for the visual identity for the World Cup.

"The Official Emblem and look of the tournament were inspired by Russia's rich culture and storytelling tradition. The shape of the trophy inspired the design of the emblem which is brought to life by the mythological firebird, its main character," said FIFA Marketing Director Thierry Weil.

Inspiring the flow of the Official Emblem, the firebird's long tail feathers wrap around the lower section of the emblem while its head, wings and body feature in the spherical top of the shape. "The brand celebrates all of the best qualities of the beautiful game and will enhance not only the tournament, but also the experiences of all who take part," Weil went on to add.
