Club World Cup

The Club World Cup (FIFA Club World Cup) is a competition to determine the world’s best team of the year. The tournament features the winners of all six FIFA confederations: Europe; South America; Asia, Oceania; CONCACAF and Africa, as well as a team from the host nation. The tournament is played in a knock-out fashion with the two strongest teams (from Europe and South America) joining in the semi-finals. The first competition in the current format took place in 2006.
