這也是德國首次晉級聯合會杯的決賽，由於在2014年國際足協世界盃獲得第四座冠軍而取得參賽資格。本次為其第三次在洲際國家杯出賽，德國因獲得1996年欧洲足球锦标赛的冠軍而取得1999年洲際國家盃的參賽資格，最終他們獲得小組第三名的成績。20052005因為是主辦國而自動取得參賽資格，最終獲得季軍。 Germany were also invited to the tournament in 1992 as 1990 FIFA World Cup winners, in 1997 as UEFA Euro 1996 winners, and in 2003 as 2002 FIFA World Cup runners-up, but declined to participate on all occasions.
智利與德國曾對決八次，其中四次為熱身賽而另外四次為 competitive matches。德國共獲勝五次，智利獲勝兩次，另有一次的結果是平手。Of the competitive matches between them, Germany remain undefeated with a record of three wins and one draw. West Germany won the first meeting 2–1 in a 1960 friendly. A year later in 1961, 智利在另一場友誼賽中以3-1獲勝. The sides faced each other competitively for the first time another year later at the 1962 FIFA World Cup, which Chile hosted, with West Germany winning 2–0 in the group stage. The sides met again in a friendly in 1968, with Chile winning 2–1. At the 1974 FIFA World Cup, hosts West Germany beat Chile 1–0 in in the first round. They met again at the 1982 FIFA World Cup, with West Germany winning the first round match 4–1. After 32 years, the two faced each other again in a friendly, with Germany winning 1–0. Their latest meeting took place in the group stage of the tournament, finishing 1–1, the first draw between the two sides.
For the third time, teams from the same group have faced again in the final, previously occurring in 1997 (Brazil and Australia) and 2009 (United States and Brazil). The final is a record-equalling fourth consecutive with a South American country, and a record-equalling second consecutive with a European country. This is the eighth time a South American country has made the final, including an all-South American final in 2005 between rivals Argentina and Brazil. On the other six occasions, the South American team won four times (Argentina in 1992, 巴西 in 1997, 2009, and 2013), and lost twice (Argentina in 1995, Brazil in 1999). This is the fifth time a European country has made the final, with three wins (Denmark in 1995, France in 2001 and 2003), and one loss (Spain in 2013). This is the third final between a South American and European country, with both continents having one win each. The South American country, Brazil, defeated Spain in 2013, and the European country, Denmark, defeated Argentina in 1995.For the first time since 2003, a different champion will be declared, as Brazil, the defending champions who won the last three editions, failed to qualify (for the first time since 1995) following their loss on penalties to Paraguay in the quarter-finals of the 2015年美洲盃足球賽. For the first time since 法國國家足球隊 in 2001, a new country will win the competition, which will be the sixth overall winner. A total of two South American teams (阿根廷國家足球隊 and 巴西國家足球隊) and two European countries (丹麥國家足球隊 and 法國國家足球隊) have previously won the Confederations Cup. If Chile were to win, they would extend South America's record number of consecutive finals won to four, and overall finals won to six. If Germany were to win, they would extend Europe's number of finals won to four, ranking second only behind South America's five wins.
