The FIFA Club World Cup is an annual football competition organised by FIFA for winners of all continental top tier Competitions, which has produced notable winners in the past and present.


The competition was solely created to crown a World Champion in club football related to the FIFA World Cup for national teams. It was designed as a replacement for the Intercontinental Cup, which used to be the world’s Premier football Competition for top clubs at the end of every calendar year.


The old Intercontinental Cup was contested by a team from Europe and South America, wholly ignoring teams from Africa (CAF), Asia (AFC), North America (CONCACAF), and Oceania (OFC).

I'm a sports enthusiast, love writing about football. I have been writing about top teams in Europe, the Premier League and La Liga.
