Qatar to stage back-to-back Club World Cups

Liverpool News Will Liverpool take part in Club World cup after Champions League triumph

After being crowned European champions for the first time in 1977, the Reds declined an invitation to play the tournament - then known as the Intercontential Cup as they felt a long-haul trip (to Buenos Aires) would interfere with their league campaign.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has confirmed that Qatar will be the host of the next two Club World Cups, in 2019 and 2020, before the tournament makes radical changes to its format in 2021.

It is seen as a chance for Qatar to set up their stadiums and adjust their hosting capabilities ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

However, this has been opposed by the European Club Association (ECA) which wrote to FIFA president Gianni Infantino in March to say that its members would not take part because there is no space in the global calendar.
