The FIFA Club World Cup is an international association football competition organised by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body.[1] The championship was first contested as the FIFA Club World Championship in 2000.[2] It was not held between 2001 and 2004 due to a combination of factors, most importantly the collapse of FIFA's marketing partner International Sport and Leisure.[3] Following a change in format which saw the FIFA Club World Championship absorb the Toyota Cup, it was relaunched in 2005 and took its current name the season afterwards.[4]

The current format of the tournament involves seven teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about two weeks; the winners of that year's edition of the Asian AFC Champions League, African CAF Champions League, North American CONCACAF Champions League, South American Copa Libertadores, Oceanian OFC Champions League and European UEFA Champions League, along with the host nation's national champion, participate in a straight knock – out tournament.[1]

At the end of each FIFA World Cup final tournament, several awards are attributed to the players and teams which have distinguished themselves from the rest in different aspects of the game. Spanish club Barcelona has been the only club to earn every award in one edition, a feat accomplished during the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup. Barcelona are also the only side to have earned two FIFA Fair Play Trophies. Barcelona's Lionel Messi, as well as Wayne Rooney, are the only players to win the competition, the Golden Ball and the Golden Boot. Messi is the only player to have earned two Golden Balls and two MVP Final awards. Brazilian player Denilson holds the record for the most goals scored in one edition. All four of his goals were scored in 2009.


Awards[edit]

There are currently four awards:[5]

  • the Golden Ball for best player;
  • the Golden Boot for top goal scorer;
  • the FIFA Fair Play Trophy for the team with the best record of fair play
  • the MVP of the Final Match Trophy for the best player in the final; first awarded in 2005.

The winners of the competition also receive the FIFA Club World Cup Champions Badge; it features an image of the trophy, which the reigning champion is entitled to display on its kit until the final of the next championship.[6] Initially, all four previous champions were allowed to wear the badge until the 2008 final, where Manchester United gained the sole right to wear the badge by winning the trophy.[6]

Each player from the clubs finishing third, second and first will also receive one bronze, silver and gold medal each, respectively.[5]

The Golden Ball award is presented to the best player at each FIFA Club World Cup, with a shortlist drawn up by the FIFA technical committee and the winner voted for by representatives of the media.[7][5] Those who finish as runners-up in the vote receive the Silver Ball and Bronze Ball awards as the second and third most outstanding players in the tournament respectively.[7][5]

Lionel Messi is the only player to have won two Golden Balls.[7][8] No player has yet to win more than one Silver Ball or Bronze Ball.[7] Brazilian players have won the most amount of Golden Balls amassing four.[7] They also hold the record for the most Silver Balls with three in total.[7] Brazilian players share the record with Argentine players for the most Bronze Balls with three each.[7] Cristian Bolaños, Dioko Kaluyituka and Mouhcine Iajour are the only non-European and non-South American players who have earned the Silver Ball or the Bronze Ball while playing for a club that doesn't come from the fore mentioned continents.[9][10]

Goalscorers[edit]

The Golden Boot or Golden Shoe Award goes to the top goalscorer of the FIFA Club World Cup.[5] If there is more than one player with the same amount of goals, the tie-breaker goes to the player who has contributed the most assists (with the FIFA Technical Study Group deciding whether an assist is to be counted as such).[5] If there is still more than one player, the tie-breaker goes to the player who has played the least amount of time.[5]

César Delgado holds the record of being the overall top goalscorers in FIFA Club World Cup history with five goals.[21] Denilson holds the record for the most goals scored in a single FIFA Club World Cup.[22] All four of his goals were scored in the 2009 tournament.[22] Brazilian players have won the most Golden Boots with six altogether.[11][12][14][16][18] Alvaro Saborio, Mohammed Noor, Mohamed Aboutreika, Hisato Satō and Mouhcine Iajour are the only non-European and non-South American players to become top-scorers of the tournament without playing their club football in Europe or South America.[23][24][25][25]
