FIFA has announced that China will host the 2021 Club World Cup with 24 teams participating in the first edition of the modern system.
The decision was announced after the FIA General Assembly in Shanghai, where China was chosen by the members "unanimously," according to FIFA president Gianni Infantio, according to the BN Sports website.
The FIFA Club World Cup will be held from June 17 to July 4, 2021.
Eight European clubs and six South American teams are taking part in the tournament, while Africa, Asia and North America each have three clubs, and Oceania is one team.
"This is a historic decision in football. It will be a competition that everyone and children love football," said FIFA president Infantio.
Qatar will host the FIFA Club World Cup in successive versions in 2019 and 2020 with seven clubs.
The European Clubs Association has expressed its previous rejection of the idea of raising the number of participants in the tournament to 24 clubs.
