The FIFA Club World Cup is a seasonal association football competition that was established in the year 2000. It begins at the beginnings of December and end around the middle of that same month. The FIFA Club World Cup is open to the confederation champions of FIFA member associations as well as the host nation's national league champions; clubs from Europe and South America enter the competition at the semifinal stage. The tournament is contested over a single-elimination format, with four stages in total. The reigning champions of the competition are Brazilian club Corinthians, after beating English side Chelsea 1–0 at the final. Corinthians were also the inaugural winners, after defeating compatriots Vasco da Gama 3-4 on penalties.

Since its inaugural edition, the tournament has had at least forty event sponsors. Toyota Motor Corporation, a Japanese multinational automaker headquartered in Toyota, Aichi, Japan.
