The 2019 FIFA Club World Cup will be the 16th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA-organised international club football tournament between the winners of the six continental confederations, as well as the host nation's league champions. The tournament will be hosted by Qatar in December 2019.

Host appointment[edit]

With proposals for an expanded Club World Cup, FIFA delayed the announcement of a host. A host was to be announced by FIFA on 15 March 2019, though this was later delayed.[1] On 28 May 2019,[2] FIFA announced that the 2019 and 2020 tournament host would be appointed at the FIFA Council meeting in Paris, France on 3 June 2019.[3]

Qatar was appointed as the host for the 2019 and 2020 tournaments on 3 June 2019, serving as test events ahead of their hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Club World Cup will retain its original format ahead of the revamp in 2021.[4]

Notes

  1. ^ a b Al-Sadd won the 2018–19 Qatar Stars League on 4 April 2019. However, if a team from Qatar wins the AFC Champions League, the runners-up of the AFC Champions League will be invited in place of Al-Sadd. Therefore, the participation of Al-Sadd will only be officially confirmed after the last team from Qatar other than Al-Sadd themselves (Al-Duhail) is eliminated from the 2019 AFC Champions League.
