The Confederation Cup, formerly called CEB Cup, is an annual baseball tournament, sanctioned and created by the Confederation of European Baseball (CEB). The tournament is the second-tier tournament for baseball leagues across Europe, alongside the first-tier Champions Cup, third-tier Federation Cup, and fourth-tier Federation Cup Qualifiers, all of which operate with a promotion and relegation system for its federations.[1]

The inaugural season of the tournament was held in 2016 in Rouen, France, and Chartres, France. FC Barcelona won the last edition(2007) beating Heidenheim Heideköpfe 13-9. After that no tournament was held between 2008 and 2015 then in 2016 the tournament returned.
