FIFA Club World Cup

Watch FIFA Club world Cup 2008 live online. The most exciting competition in December - football tournament in Japan.

The FIFA Club World Cup, better known as the FIFA Club World Championship, is a football competition contested between the champion clubs from all six continental confederations. Since 2007, the champions of Oceania must play a qualifying play-off against the champion club of the host country.

The 2008 FIFA Club World Cup is scheduled for 12-21 December 2008 in Japan. It will be the 5th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup.

History

2000 - In January, the first competition took place in Brazil. It was intended by FIFA to be a replacement for the Intercontinental Cup (also known as the Toyota Cup), which was contested annually in Tokyo, Japan by the champions of Europe via the Champions League and South America via the Copa Libertadores.

The second edition was in Spain in 2001, to feature 12 teams. This was canceled 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 terms with the Toyota Cup to merge the two competitions, with the first installment of the relaunched Club World Championship held in Japan between December 11 and December 18, 2005.

The 2009 and 2010 will be hosted by the United Arab Emirates, with the 2011 and 2012 editions returning to Japan.

The FIFA Club World Championship in Brazil was the first international footballing event of the new millennium. With a mind-boggling array of top-tier talent on display, the brave, new move towards a more globalised club football community made for quite a showcase indeed. Eight club sides representing every corner of Planet Football converged on Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to bask under the warm South American sun in the nation considered by most to be the true heart and soul of the beautiful game.

2005

  • Winner: Sao Paulo FC
  • Runners-Up: Liverpool FC

It was billed as the champion of champions tournament. The six confederation winners met in Japan for the right to be called the best on the planet. And the FIFA Club World Championship TOYOTA Cup Japan 2005 lived up to the hype, proving to be a largely even contest and a knockout for fans.

2006

  • Winner: Sport Club Internacional
  • Runners-Up: FC Barcelona
  • Third: Ahly Sporting Club
  • Fourth: America
  • adidas Golden Ball: DECO (POR)

FIFA Fair play award: FC Barcelona

All three editions of the FIFA Club World Cup have culminated in Brazilian sides being crowned champions: Corinthians in 2000, Sao Paulo in 2005 and SC Internacional de Porto Alegre in 2006. That is surely no coincidence, and can be considered all the more impressive for the fact that the beaten finalists in the last two tournaments have been the heavily-tipped European champions.

2007

  • Winner: AC Milan
  • Runners-Up: Boca Juniors
  • Third: Urawa Red Diamonds
  • Fourth: Etoile Sportive du Sahel
  • adidas Golden Ball: KAKA (BRA)

FIFA Fair play award: Urawa Red Diamonds

By defeating Boca Juniors, the Italians ended South America's dominance and brought the FIFA Club World Cup to Europe for the first time.
