FIFA gets 9 commercial rights offers for new Club World Cup

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — FIFA has received nine offers from companies seeking the commercial and broadcasting rights to the expanded 24-team Club World Cup.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said Friday the interest was greater than anticipated in the new competition, which will relaunch in China in June 2021 with a new name and a new format.

Infantino did not name any of the companies that submitted offers.

The penultimate edition of the annual seven-team version of FIFA's main club competition is being held in Qatar, with Champions League winner Liverpool playing South American champion Flamengo in Saturday's final.
