We take a look at all the clubs that lifted the prestigious Club World Cup trophy throughout the years.

The FIFA Club World Cup is an annual football competition, that stages the most successful clubs from around the globe in the preceding year. The current format of the tournament involves seven teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about two weeks; the winners of the previous season’s AFC Champions League (Asia), CAF Champions League (Africa), CONCACAF Champions League (North, Central America and Caribbean), CONMEBOL Libertadores (South America), OFC Champions League (Oceania) and UEFA Champions League (Europe), along with the host nation’s national champions, participate in a straight knock-out tournament.

The competition was first played in the year 2000 when Corinthians defeated Vasco Da Gama in the finals, to claim the first-ever FIFA Club World Cup. Following this, the competition was not held for the forthcoming three years, due to a variety of reasons. But since the onset of 2005, the competition has been held every year and has now cemented its place in the footballing world, which is recognised and looked upon by everyone.

This year’s FIFA Club World Cup is being played in Morocco, and the teams competing in it are Real Madrid, Wydad Casablanca, Al Hilal, Seattle Sounders, Flamengo, Auckland City, and Al Ahly.

Now, let’s take a look at the different clubs, that have lifted arguably the most potent trophy in Club football, in the past years.
