The world soccer association FIFA wants to host the tournament originally planned for December, probably two months later, the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” reported Friday night without naming any source. FC Bayern, the record champions of Germany, will participate as champions of the Champions League.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino had already said after the world association congress in September that it was unlikely that the competition could take place in December as planned. Due to the crown pandemic, the original schedule in international soccer got mixed up. But there are already considerations with host Qatar to host the mini-tournament with seven clubs early next year, Infantino said at the time.
