Japan To Host 2021 FIFA World Club Cup

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has announced that Japan will host the 2021 FIFA World Club Cup in February.

He also revealed that the expanded version of the tournament has been put on hold for now due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

It means there will be two World Club Cups in a year, Qatar will host the 2020 edition between February 1 and 11 before the 2021 tournament will be played in Japan in December.

“Due to the Covid-19 situation, which has led to the postponement of the revamped new Club World Cup…we’ve decided to organise a Club World Cup in the current format again in 2021 in December and we awarded the hosting rights to Japan,” Infantino said following a FIFA Council meeting on Friday.

There will be one representative from Asia, Europe, Oceania, South America, Central America, North America and Africa.

Bayern Munich will represent Europe while Al-Ahly will fly Africa’s flag.
