Confederations Cup 1992 – Saudi Arabia

Confederations Cup 1992 – Saudi Arabia

The 1st edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup was played in Saudi Arabia from the 15th – 20th October 1992. Four teams took part in the tournament, which was staged at only one venue in Saudi Arabia – the King Fahd II Stadium in Riyadh. The teams played a straight knockout format with semi finals followed by a third place play-off and a final. At the time, the tournament was known as the King Fahd Cup, but it has since been recognised by FIFA as the first Confederations Cup.

The qualified teams were: Saudi Arabia (hosts and Asian Cup 1988 winners), Argentina (Copa America 1991 winners), United States (CONCACAF Gold Cup 1991 winners) and Ivory Coast (African Cup of Nations 1992 winners).
