The Club World Cup 2022 officially gets underway tomorrow and we have all of the details you need to know regarding this upcoming tournament.
Chelsea will be the only representative from Europe after winning the Champions League during the 2020/21 season, with a Kai Havertz goal during their 1-0 win over Manchester City securing the title of European champions for only the second time in the club’s history.
Despite having played in the Club World Cup previously, the Blues are still yet to win the tournament having lost 1-0 to the Brazilian Serie A side Corinthians in the final of the 2012 competition.
With this in mind, Chelsea will have the opportunity to right the wrongs of those events that took place in Yokohama, Japan nine years ago, and will be willing to have their name carved into history for the first time.
