The 2010 FIFA Club World Cup was a football tournament that was played from 8 to 18 December 2010. It was the 7th FIFA Club World Cup and was hosted by the United Arab Emirates.[1] Other countries that placed bids were Australia and Japan. Portugal had initially placed a bid, but later withdrew from the process.[2]

The tournament marked the first time in its history that a team from outside Europe or South America reached the final, after Africa's TP Mazembe of DR Congo defeated South America's Internacional of Brazil in the semi-finals.[3] However, Mazembe were unable to pass the final hurdle, as they lost 3–0 to Italy's Internazionale (representing Europe) in the final.[4] It was Inter's third world title, having won the Club World Cup's predecessor – the Intercontinental Cup – in 1964 and 1965.[4]

However, for the fifth-place and third-place matches, no extra time would be played, and if tied the match would go straight to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.[2]
