FIFA celebrated the draw for the Confederations Cup 2013, taking place in Brazil between 15 and 30 June 2013. The host cities will be Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Fortaleza, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.
The are two groups to start with, a seemingly difficult one, with Brazil, Japan, Mexico and Italy. And a theoretically easy one with Spain, Uruguay, Tahiti and an African team yet to be defined.

It is unlikely the competition will bring hordes of foreign tourists to Brazil. However, it remains to be seen whether hotels at the host cities will give a “special” treatment to accommodation fares during the event.
