Cristiano Ronaldo collects the Silver Ball trophy.

Cristiano Ronaldo collects the Silver Ball trophy from Gianni Infantino after winning the 2017 Club World Cup with Real Madrid.Qatar will host the remaining two editions of the tournament’s current format, with the 2019 competition getting under way on December 11.The new format will begin in June 2021 and the competition will run every four years from June to July, taking the place on the FIFA calendar currently occupied by the Confederations Cup, which is also being scrapped.It is expected to feature eight European teams, six from South America, three from each of Africa, Asia and North and Central America and one from Oceania.Infantino confirmed that China, which has made football a national priority under President Xi Jinping, had been the only candidate.When the expanded format was approved at a FIFA Council meeting in Miami in March, several top European clubs indicated they intended to boycott the competition.In a letter sent to Infantino and signed by 15 members, including Juventus, Manchester United, Barcelona and Ajax, the European Club Association (ECA) said it was “firmly against any approval of a revised Club World Cup at this point in time and confirm that no ECA clubs would take part to such a competition.”
