The FIFA Club World Cup is an seasonal association football competition established in 2000. The competition is open to the confederation champions of the FIFA member associations, as well as the host nation's national league champions; clubs from Europe and South America enter the competition at the semi-final stage. It is contested by each of the six confederation league winners and member associations of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body of association football. The tournament is contested over a single-elimination format, with a total four stages. Prior to 2006, the competition was known as FIFA Club World Championship. Brazilian side Corinthians won the inaugural tournament held at home ground, defeating fellow compatriots Vasco da Gama in the 2000 final. The competition has taken place every year, except between 2001 and 2004, mainly due to the financial collapse of Swiss-based sports marketing firm and FIFA associate International Sport and Leisure (ISL).

Corinthians and Barcelona hold the record for most victories, with each club winning the competition twice since its inception. Teams from Brazil have won the tournament the most times, with four winners produced from the nation. They have also won the competition the most times in a row, winning it twice from 2005 to 2006. The last winners before the FIFA Club World Championship was renamed were São Paulo, who defeated Liverpool 1–0 in the 2005 final. English, Argentine, as well as Brazillian clubs, have been runners-up the most times, with each of the nation's club losing twice. Of the European sides, Italy and Spain have won the competition most times, Milan in 2007 and Internazionale in 2008, while the latter with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011. The current champions are Corinthians, who won their second title, following a 1–0 win against Chelsea in the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup Final at the International Stadium Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan.
