    Fifa has moved the annual Club World Cup from December 2020 to February 2021 because of COVID-19 restrictions.

    European representatives Bayern Munich won the Champions League in August, but the pandemic has affected the conclusion of other continental championships.

    According to the BBC, the tournament will be played in Qatar from February 1st – 11th.

    Liverpool won the last Club World Cup in December 2019.

    Fifa also announced that its women’s Under-20 and Under-17 2020 World Cups, initially rescheduled for 2021, have been cancelled and will not take place.

    The respective host nations for the 2020 tournaments will now host the next scheduled finals in 2022 instead, with Costa Rica staging the Under-20 World Cup, and India the Under-17 tournament.
