January 03 2021 –
Chelsea will be the only representative from Europe after winning the Champions League during the 2020/21 season, with a Kai Havertz goal during their 1-0 win over Manchester City securing the title of European champions for only the second time in the club’s history.
Despite having played in the Club World Cup previously, the Blues are still yet to win the tournament having lost 1-0 to the Brazilian Serie A side Corinthians in the final of the 2012 competition.
With this in mind, Chelsea will have the opportunity to right the wrongs of those events that took place in Yokohama, Japan nine years ago, and will be willing to have their name carved into history for the first time.
The 2021 Club World Cup will take place from Thursday 3rd February until Saturday 12 February 2022.
This year’s Club World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates for the first time, with two stadiums set to house all of the games.
Here are the clubs that will be taking place in the 2021 Club World Cup and how they qualified for the competition:
Palmeriras (CONMEBOL) – Winners of the 2021 Copa Libertadores.
Chelsea (UEFA) – Winners of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League
