The 2011 FIFA Club World Cup was a football tournament that was played from 8 to 18 December 2011.[1] It was the eighth edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA-organised tournament between the champion clubs from each of the six continental confederations as well as the league winner from the host nation.

After the United Arab Emirates hosted the tournament in 2009 and 2010, hosting rights for the 2011 edition returned to Japan.[2][3] During a visit to Japan on 23 May 2011, FIFA President Sepp Blatter confirmed that Japan would remain as hosts of the tournament despite the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.[4]

The tournament was won by Spanish club Barcelona, who defeated Brazilian club Santos 4–0 in the final.[5][6]

Matches[edit]

A draw was held on 17 November in Nagoya to decide the "positions" of the three teams entering the quarterfinals: Al-Sadd (AFC), Espérance (CAF), and Monterrey (CONCACAF).[18]

If a match was tied after normal playing time:[15]

  • For elimination matches, extra time would be played. If still tied after extra time, a penalty shootout would be held to determine the winner.
  • For the matches for fifth place and third place, no extra time would be played, and the match would go straight to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.
