The FIFA club world cup is set to kick off by December this year and it will be played in Asian Country Japan. English club and European Champions Chelsea will participate in their second ever club world cup while Egytptian side Al Ahly have also qualified for the tournament.
This is Chelsea's second appearance in the club world, while African side Al Ahly will be playing in the tournament for the 7th time now.
Chelsea defeated English Champions Manchester City in the UEFA champions league final in May to qualify for the tournament as well as the UEFA Super cup, while Al Ahly defeated Kaizer Chiefs in the CAF Champions League to qualify for the tournament.
Al Ahly will face the winners of the CAF Confederation Cup in the CAF super cup finals and they will be playing in these tournaments for two years consecutively.
They (Al Ahly) dominated the CAF champions league final against Kaizer chiefs that was recently played in Morocco.
The Egyptian club could be facing European Champions Chelsea later in the Club World Cup and it will be a game to watch.
