When does the Club World Cup 2021 start?

The 2021 Club World Cup will actually take place in early 2022, with FIFA confirming that the tournament will run from February 3, 2022 until February 21, 2022.

It was initially set to be held in Japan in 2021, but uncertainty surrounding public health - owing to the Covid-19 pandemic - saw the country drop its hosting commitment.

It begins with a first-round game between hosts Al Jazira and Auckland City, followed by the second round, then semi-finals, then final.

Who won the last Club World Cup?

Bayern Munich were crowned Club World Cup champions in 2020.

They defeated Mexico's Tigres UANL 1-0 in the final thanks to a goal from Benjamin Pavard. It was the Bundesliga side's second time lifting the trophy, having previously won it in 2013.

Bayern cannot defend their title in the 2021 edition of the tournament, having failed to win the 2020-21 Champions League.
