|China To Host First Edition Of Expanded FIFA Club World Cup Tournament In 2021 by Joyoung(m): 3:15pm On Oct 24, 2019|
The FIFA Council convened today in Shanghai and voted on a number of key steps for the future of international tournaments, including a unanimous decision to appoint China PR as the host of the first edition of the new FIFA Club World Cup in 2021.
The tournament will be played between June and July 2021 and the final list of venues will be decided by FIFA and the Chinese FA.
The participation model to determine the clubs that qualify from each confederation will be finalised in a consultation process between FIFA and the six confederations.
Top European clubs have previously said they will boycott the tournament.
"The new [tournament] will be a competition anyone who loves football is looking forward to," Infantino said.
Qatar will stage the final two editions of the seven-team tournament. The 2019 competition begins on 11 December, with Liverpool entering at the semi-final stage a week later.
In March, the European Club Association (ECA) expressed concern about expanding the tournament.
ECA board members, including Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, signed a letter saying they were "firmly against any potential approval of a revised CWC", adding that no ECA clubs would take part.
Speaking at a Fifa council meeting in Shanghai, Infantino said the decision to hold the tournament in China was "historic" and would further develop the club game in Asia.
"It is the first real and true World Cup where the best clubs will compete," the Swiss-Italian said.
