The 2007 Champions Youth Cup was the first and only staging of the Champions Youth Cup, a proposed annual football tournament. It was supported by the G-14 group and was intended to be a Club World Championship for the Under-19 teams of some of the world's largest clubs. It took place in Malaysia from 5 August to 19 August 2007. It featured sixteen teams: eleven European teams, two teams from South America, a host invitee team from Europe, a host invitee team from Asia and the U-19 national team of the tournament hosts, Malaysia. Each match lasted only 70 minutes, and, in the event of a draw in the knockout stage, there was no extra time.[1] A second edition of the tournament, was planned for August 2008. However it was canceled in June, two months before the start, because of a dispute between the Football Association of Malaysia and the Gifted Group, the tournament organizers.[2]
