10th FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP - 2013 : MOROCCO
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.
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.
In 2009 and 2010 the tournament was organised in the United Arab Emirates, before returning to Japan in 2011.
The FIFA Club World Cup is a tournament played every year in December.
The tournament is contested by the champion clubs from each of the six continental confederations and the league winners from the host nation.
