Latest news: The 2001 edition of the FIFA Club World Championship, due to be held in Spain from 28 July to 12 August, has been indefinitely postponed.

The Organizing Committee made up of members of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and FIFA - was in charge of selecting the seeded teams, and a draw for the tournament was held on Tuesday, 6 March 2001 in La Coruna. RFEF sources said they had put forward Real Madrid (current European champions), Deportivo la Coruna (Spanish League champions) and Boca Juniors (Libertadores Cup and Intercontinental Cup champions) as the main teams in the tournament.

However, the Organizing Committee eventually decided to include Palmeiras, who will have the daunting task of making sure the title won last year by Corinthians stays in Brazil.
