    Despite the name, the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup actually takes place in 2022. The tournament runs from February 3 through February 11 in 2022. The name comes from the fact that these teams qualify based on their results from 2021.

    For viewers in the United States, coverage of all games are live on FOX Sports and FOX Deportes. Due to a number of factors including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the congested soccer calendar and a winter World Cup in 2022, the tournament takes place in the new year for the second-consecutive year.

    Originally, tournament organizers planned to host the 2021 Club World Cup in China during June and July. When the committee decided to move the tournament to Japan, the country backed out of its commitment due to possible restrictions on fan attendance.

    Format

    The seven teams competing are as follows:

    • Chelsea – ENG (UEFA Champions League winners)
    • Palemeiras – BRA (CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores winners)
    • Al Hilal – SAU (AFC Champions League winners)
    • Al Ahly – EGY  (CAF Champions League winners)
    • Monterrey – MEX (CONCACAF Champions League winners)
    • AS Pirae – TAHITI (Designated by OFC)
    • Al Jazira – UAE (UAE Pro League winners)

    These teams compete in a single-elimination tournament.

    The host nation’s national champions contest a play-off against the Oceania champions, from which the winner joins the champions of Asia, Africa and North America in the quarter-finals. The quarter-final winners go on to face the European and South American champions, who enter at the semi-final stage, for a place in the final.
