FIFA Club World Cup


Played for the first time in 2000 (but see note in following paragraph), in a 8-team format and with a "home team" among the selected/invited teams. After the second edition was first scheduled to 2001, then postponed to 2003 and eventually cancelled, the tournament returned in 2005, replacing the traditional Toyota Cup, in a new 6-team format with the participation of six continental champions. In 2007, the tournament was increased to a 7-team format, with the inclusion of one berth to the host country.

The first edition (2000) was known as FIFA Club World Championship; the second (2005) as FIFA Club World Championship Toyota Cup; the name changed to FIFA Club World Cup in 2006.

In March 2007 it was reported that FIFA accepted a request by CBF and Palmeiras to consider the 1951 Copa Rio de Janeiro as the first official Club World Championship. A definite decision was taken on December 16, 2007, by the FIFA Executive Committee: no tournaments other than those organised by FIFA in 2000 and since 2005 will be considered Club World Championships.

Since 2005, all editions were held in Japan apart from those of 2009, 2010, 2017 and 2018 (all in the United Arab Emirates) and those of 2013 and 2014 (both in Morocco).

NB: points and percentages computed considering 3 points by win;
    due to the different status of the various matches (e.g. fifth place match as
    compared to final), the validity of the above ranking is very much limited.
