What is the FIFA Club World Cup?

The annual tournament features the champions of the various continents as well as the national champions of the host country, with Chelsea qualifying as Champions League winners.

The matches were to be played in Japan, but they pulled out as hosts last month due to the country’s high number of coronavirus cases, so the tournament is being held in the United Arab Emirates.
