For the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification, there are two scheduled inter-confederation playoffs to determine the final two qualification spots to the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. The ties themselves were not drawn, but were allocated by FIFA as:

  • AFC Fifth round 4th place v OFC Nations Cup winner
  • CONCACAF Fourth round second place v CONMEBOL fourth place

The draw for the order in which the two matches will be played was held on 2 June 2017 during the FIFA congress in Castries, Saint Lucia.
