FIFA Club World Cup draw: how and where to watch, times, TV, online
All the information on how and where to watch the draw for the delayed 2020 FIFA Club World Cup, live from FIFA headquarters in Zurich at 16:00 CET on 19 January.
The 2020 edition of the tournament, which was originally scheduled for December, will now be held from 4-11 February in Qatar and will bring together continental champions from across the world.
Just last week the competition saw Auckland City withdrawn from the tournament due to the covid-19 pandemic and quarantine measures required by New Zealand's authorities. The news of their withdrawal was confirmed via FIFA on Friday.
That leaves six competitors representing global governing bodies of: UEFA (Bayern Munich), AFC (Ulsan Hyundai), CONCACAF (Tigres UANL), CAF (Al Ahly), Qatari league champions Al-Duhail along with a CONMEBOL representative that will be resolved after the Copa Libertadores final between Santos and Palmeiras on 30 January.
Bayern Munich and the Libertadores winners get a fast track through to the semi-final of the tournament that will be staged in Al-Rayaan in the Doha suburbs with Education City and the Al-Rayaan stadiums to be used to stage the matches.
