The FIFA Club World Cup is a football competition between the champion clubs from all six continental confederations.

The first FIFA Club World Championship took place in Brazil in January 2000. It ran in parallel with the Intercontinental Cup, contested annually since 1960 by the winners of the UEFA Champions League and the South American Copa Libertadores, until the two merged in 2005.

History

The 2000 FIFA Club World Championship, held in Brazil, consisted of eight qualifiers: the six continental champions, the 1998 Intercontinental Champions and the host nation champions. The tournament was controversial, most notably in England where Manchester United had to withdraw from a national cup competition, the FA Cup, in order to compete. The launch of the competition was understood by some to be part of a struggle between FIFA and UEFA, who were competing for control of international club football: the existing Intercontinental Cup was outside of FIFA's jurisdiction.[1] The final was competed between the two Brazilian sides and the winner was Sport Club Corinthians Paulista in a penalty shoot-out over Clube de Regatas Vasco da Gama.[2]

The second competition was penciled in for Spain in 2001, to feature 12 teams. This was cancelled owing to a combination of factors, most importantly the collapse of FIFA's marketing partner ISL. It was then intended to hold the event in 2003, but this also failed to happen. FIFA eventually agreed to terms with the UEFA to merge the two competitions.

The trophy since 2005

The final Intercontinental Cup was in 2004, with the first installment of the relaunched Club World Championship Toyota Cup held in Japan between December 11 and December 18, 2005.

The 2005 relaunched version was shorter than the previous World Championship, reducing the problem of scheduling the tournament around the different club seasons across each continent. It contained just the six reigning continental champions, with the CONMEBOL and UEFA champions receiving byes to the semi-finals of the tournament. A completely new trophy was introduced, replacing all previous cups: the Intercontinental trophy, the Toyota trophy and the trophy won by Corinthians in 2000.

The competition was then renamed as FIFA Club World Cup[3] for the 2006 event, which was held annually in Japan until 2008. The United Arab Emirates hosted the event in 2009 and 2010. For the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup, a play-off match between the OFC champions and the host-nation champions for entry into the quarter-final stage was introduced in order to increase home interest in the tournament. The reintroduction of the match for fifth place for the 2008 competition also prompted an increase in prize money by US$500,000 to a total of US$16.5 million. The winners took away $5 million, second-placed team received $4 million, the third-placed team $2.5 million, the fourth-placed team $2 million, the fifth-placed team $1.5 million, the sixth-placed team $1 million and the seventh-placed team received $500,000.[4]

In February 2008 a FIFA Club World Cup Champions Badge was introduced, featuring an image of the trophy, which the reigning champion is entitled to display on its kit until the final of the next championship. Initially, all four previous champions were allowed to wear the badge until the 2008 final,[5] where Manchester United gained the sole right to wear the badge by winning the trophy.

The teams with the most appearances in the competition are Al-Ahly of Egypt, Pachuca of Mexico, Auckland City of New Zealand, and FC Barcelona of Spain who have played in three out of the eight tournaments held – 2005, 2006 and 2008 for Al-Ahly; 2007, 2008 and 2010 for Pachuca; and 2006, 2009 and 2011 for Auckland City and Barcelona.

Sponsorship

The tournament's presenting partner is Toyota, presumably as a result of the merger of the Club World Championship with the Toyota-sponsored Intercontinental Cup in 2005. Because Toyota is an automaker and is the main sponsor of the tournament, Hyundai-Kia's status as FIFA partner is not active with respect to the Club World Cup. The five other FIFA partners – Adidas, Coca-Cola, Emirates, Sony, and Visa – retain full sponsorship rights, however.

The event sponsors have varied from year to year.

Since 2005, the event sponsors were:
