Football as a game is always evolving, particularly in the modern day with the sheer amount of money being pumped into it.

FIFA and UEFA are always looking for ways to revolutionise their major tournaments, most notably the World Cup and the Champions League.

They are undoubtedly the most competitive on the footballing calendar, with the audiences drawn to both way over the billion mark.

But, is there a way to make these tournaments even better?

Well, yes there is, because FIFA have just announced something absolutely huge.

Football's main governing body have announced the creation of the Super Club World Cup, with the first tournament set to take place in 2021. It will run every four years.

FOOTBALL'S NEXT BIG THING

Spanish publication Marca report that 24 teams from all across the world will take place and it will replace the Confederations Cup.

This means that Germany will be the last ever champions of the international showpiece.
