FIFA Club World Cup date, reasons why Chelsea may not play tournament in Japan explained
The tournament is scheduled to be played in Japan between December 9 to December 19, 2021.
However, the coronavirus pandemic currently ravaging Japan may force FIFA to rethink who hosts this year’s Championship, as per Sports Mail.
FIFA are desperate to have fans in the stadium watching the games and may opt for Qatar – hosts of last year’s tournament, which was eventually won by Bayern Munich in February.
Chelsea are considered clear favourites to win the tournament. The Club World Cup remains a title the Blues are yet to win in their history.
