The 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup football tournament was the sixth FIFA Confederations Cup, held in Francemarker in June 2003. France retained the title they had won in 2001, but the tournament was overshadowed by the death of Cameroon player Marc-Vivien Foé, who died of heart failure in his side's semi-final against Colombia. Foé's death united the France and Cameroon teams in the final match, which was played even though team players from both sides had explicitly stated that the match should not be played out of respect for Foé. The Cameroon players did their best to take the trophy home in honour of their team mate, and forced the match into extra time, where a golden goal by Thierry Henry gave Francemarker the trophy.

At the presentation of medals and trophies, two Cameroonmarker players held a gigantic photo of Foé, and a runner-up medal was hung to the edge of the photo too. When French captain Marcel Desailly was presented with the Confederations Cup, he did not lift it up high, but held it in unison with Cameroon captain Rigobert Song. Foé finished third in media voting for player of the tournament and was posthumously awarded the Bronze Ball at its conclusion.
