{{main|Club World Cup}}
 
A lucrative yet superfluous tournament that pits the champions of FIFA's continental competitions against each other. Teams from Japan, Australia and such play against each other for the right to be taught a footballing lesson by Manchester United or Boca Juniors. In principle there's nothing wrong with the idea, but in reality everyone knows that the champions of Europe are the best team in the world. Still, as long as 100 million Japanese watch the game, buy a United shirt and squeal in frighteningly high-pitched voices it's all worth it.
