Club World Cup 2022 Winner

The Club World Cup 2022 will take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in February. This will be the 18th edition of a tournament that was founded in 2000 and eventually replaced the Intercontinental Cup. The Club World Cup features the winners of various continental competitions, such as the Champions League and the Copa Libertadores.

The inaugural Club World Cup brought together eight teams in Brazil at the turn of the millennium. Real Madrid were the favorites to lift the trophy, but they only finished second in their group. Corinthians, who beat them to first place, went on to win the tournament.

Every match at the Club World Cup 2022 matches will take place in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. Two grounds are being used for the event: the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium and the Al Nahyan Stadium. The final is due to be held on February 12.

Club World Cup 2022 Frequently Asked Questions

Who Will Win Club World Cup 2022?

Chelsea are the heavy favorites to win the Club World Cup 2022, as the respective odds in the Unibet sportsbook illustrate. The European side tends to emerge victorious at this competition, but a small wager on Palmeiras could be astute – they are likely to pounce if Chelsea take their eye off the ball.

Which Teams Qualify for the Club World Cup?

World soccer is divided into six confederations: UEFA (Europe), CONMEBOL (South America), CONCACAF (North America, Central America and the Caribbean), AFC (Asia), CAF (Africa) and OFC (Oceania). To qualify for the Club World Cup, a team must first win the principal continental competition in their region. The host nation also supplies one team, usually the most recent winners of the league title.

Chelsea qualified for the Club World Cup 2022 by winning last season’s UEFA Champions League. Palmeiras are the reigning Copa Libertadores champions. Monterrey won the CONCACAF Champions League, Al Ahly won the CAF Champions League and Al Hilal won the AFC Champions League.

The OFC did not hold the Champions League last season due to the pandemic, so the governing body for soccer in Oceania nominated AS Pirae of Tahiti as their representative at the Club World Cup 2022. Auckland City were originally scheduled to take part, but they had to drop out due to border and quarantine restrictions in New Zealand.

Al Jazira, the most recent winners of the UAE Pro League, will be flying the flag for the host nation.

Who Were the Club World Cup 2021 Winners?

Somewhat confusingly, the upcoming tournament in the UAE is officially called ‘Club World Cup 2021’, because it features the teams that won last year’s continental competitions.

The previous edition of the Club World Cup, held in Qatar 12 months ago but called ‘Club World Cup 2020’, was won by Bayern Munich. The reigning European champions beat Al Ahly 2-0 in the semi-finals, before a slender 1-0 triumph over Mexican outfit UANL in the final.

Which Teams Have Had Most Success at the Club World Cup?

Club World Cup Winners Victories Years
Real Madrid 4 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018
Barcelona 3 2009, 2011, 2015
Corinthians 2 2000, 2012
Bayern Munich 2 2013, 2020
Liverpool 1 2019
Inter 1 2010
AC Milan 1 2007
Manchester United 1 2008
Sao Paulo 1 2005
Internacional 1 2006

How Does the Club World Cup Work?

As the winners of the two biggest continental competitions, Chelsea and Palmeiras have been given a bye to the semi-finals.

Al Hilal, Monterrey and Al Ahly enter in the second round, where they will be joined by the winner of the solitary first-round clash between Al Jazira and AS Pirae.

Where Is the Club World Cup 2022?

The Club World Cup 2022 is being hosted by the UAE. The original plan was for an expanded Club World Cup featuring 24 teams to be held in China in the summer of 2021. This enlarged tournament will be introduced at some point in the future, but the fixture congestion caused by the Covid-19 pandemic forced FIFA to push it back.

In late 2020, world soccer’s governing body announced the Club World Cup 2022 would be held in Japan, but the Football Association of that country gave up the hosting rights in September due to the pandemic. The UAE was chosen as the host nation in October.

Is the Club World Cup Every Year?

The Club World Cup has been held every year since 2005. As mentioned previously, the inaugural edition was staged in Brazil in 2000, but the tournament scheduled for the following year was cancelled due to the collapse of International Sport and Leisure (ISL), FIFA’s chief marketing partner. The Club World Cup did not resume until the middle of the decade.

The revamped Club World Cup will be played every four years, replacing the Confederations Cup. It is still not clear when the 24-team version will begin, but 2023 looks most likely at present.

FIFA still has some obstacles to overcome, however. The European Club Association, which represents the interests of 220 teams across the continent, is opposed to the enlarged Club World Cup. It has proposed that European sides boycott the competition, but FIFA will no doubt work hard to ensure their participation.

How can I watch the Club World Cup 2022 on TV?
