"So we'll move to the next stage and look at who could host these games, and then congress can take the final decision".

It will replace the current seven-team annual Club World Cup, which is now played in December, with an expanded quadrennial version in June-July 2021.

Infantino added that club football was "evolving at a different pace in different parts of the world" and it was Fifa's duty to put on an "exciting, prestigious and inclusive competition, and we'll have that with this Club World Cup, starting in 2021".
