At the announcement of the new competition, FIFA president Gianni Infantino previously said: 'This is a historic decision for football because the FIFA council decided unanimously to appoint China as the host for the new FIFA World Cup for clubs.

The updated format of the tournament will also see South America get six spots, Asia, and North and Central America with three spots, and Oceania with only one spot.
