Japan to host 2021 FIFA Club World Cup

Japan will be the host nation for the upcoming 2021 FIFA Club World Cup. 

FIFA confirmed this on Friday but the date is still undisclosed with the tournament set to be played during the late winter. 

"Following the postponement of the revamped FIFA Club World Cup, initially planned to take place in 2021 in the slot previously reserved for the FIFA Confederations Cup, the Council decided that a Club World Cup, in the current format with seven teams, be organised for late 2021 and the hosting rights for this competition be awarded to Japan," a statement from FIFA read. 

Japan is the eight-time Club World Cup host, last being in 2016.
