OllieDrew Posted May 6, 2020 Share Posted May 6, 2020 I have created a brand new "FIFA Club World Cup" file to start from 2019 and commence every 2 years instead of 4. It will follow the same format that is going to be introduced in 2021. There are 24 teams in 8 groups of 3 with Quarter Finals, Semi Finals, Third Place Play Off and Final. I have used the teams FIFA would have used if the tournament was starting now instead of 2021. There are 8 qualifiers from Europe, 6 from South America, 3 from North America, 3 from Africa, 3 from Asia and 1 from Oceanic. For 2019 the qualifiers list below is based on previous histories and recent winners in their relevant competitions within the last 6 years as described by FIFA in their proposals. On doing research for 2019 I think I have them all correct. The list is as follows; Europe - UEFA [8 teams] ; Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, FC Bayern, Real Madrid, Sevilla. South America - Conmebol [6 teams] ; Gremio, Boca Juniors, Atletico Nacional, Flamengo, San Lorenzo, River Plate. North America - Concacaf [3 teams] : CF Monterrey, Club America, CD Guadalajara. Africa - CAF [3 teams] ; ES Tunis, Wydad Casablanca, Al-Ahly. Asia - AFC [3 teams] ; Al-Hilal, Kashima Antlers, Urawa Reds. Pacific - Oceanic [1 team] ; Hienghene Sport. As in real life the tournament in 2019 is held in Qatar. There are 13 stadiums in use and I have created the new 4 stadiums that are being created for the 2022 FIFA World Cup that are not in the database. They are the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Doha, the Al-Wakrah Stadium in Al-Wakrah, the Al-Thumama Stadium in Doha and the Al-Rayyan Stadium in Al-Rayyan. The final is held in the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail. Because of the very hot weather conditions in Qatar I have moved the kick off times to 16:00, 18:00, 20:00 and 22:00. The 8 European teams have top seeding and are seperated into the 8 groups. The 6 South American and 2 of the North American teams have second seeding in the groups. 1 North American, 3 African, 3 Asian and the 1 Oceanic teams take the 3rd seedings in the groups. The tournament starts on July 4th with the final taking place on July 21st. For 2021 the tournament is held in China as in real life with all the same various stadiums in China, groups, seedings, kick off times and dates. The host nation holds the tournament for two consecutive times. So China will hold the tournament in 2021 and 2023 as has happened in previous years. The teams that qualify have had to be changed and will follow the format listed below from 2021 onwards; Europe - UEFA [8 teams] ; Champions League Winners, Champions League Runners-Up, Europa League Winners, Premier League Winners*, LaLiga Santander Winners*, Serie A Winners*, Bundesliga Winners*, Ligue 1 Winners*. South America - Conmebol [6 teams] ; Copa Libertadores Winners, Copa Libertadores Runners-Up, Copa Sudamerica Winners, Brazil Serie A Winners*, Argentina Superliga Winners*, Uruguay Primera Division Winners*. North America - Concacaf [3 teams] : Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League Winners, Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League Runners-Up, Mexico Liga MX Winners*. Africa - CAF [3 teams] ; CAF Champions League Winners, CAF Champions League Runners-Up, CAF Confederations Cup Winners. Asia - AFC [3 teams] ; AFC Champions League Winners, AFC Champions League Runners-Up, AFC Cup Winners. Pacific - Oceanic [1 team] ; Fiji Airways OFC Champions League Winners. * Should any Winners of the leagues listed win the various cup tournaments then the second placed or even third placed teams in the various leagues for that year will be used instead. * All histories and player awards are included.
