Just seen this absolutely  fantastic trip,highlights were the brunch at the Radisson Blu,32 of us & they helped us  put the flags up as well...the souq was brilliant like a scene from Indiana Jones...
The fanzone on the Friday night, 2 ubers couldn't find the place so 5 of us absolutely smashed after the brunch walking across doha golf course with only the security lights to help us....
Also the roof top bar at the Marriott amazing....
But the best of all was winning that trophy,14 years after seeing us robbed in the final in japan revenge was very very sweet.....loads of reds in tears at the end....it meant that much....

Is it definitely even happening again this Dec? I thought this was the last one in the current format and they'd try restructure it (i.e. milk it for maximum ££££)

Yes. This next one is Doha again. So whoever wins in Istanbul gets to go again.

The World Club Cup is restructuring to a 24 team summer tournament from 2021, it'll be played in China across June/July and Liverpool are already in it by virtue of winning the European Cup in 2019.

Another location with current human rights issues...  :butt

I guess if it's used as pre-season I'd prefer a summer tournament than more games in December.

I think its actually taking place in the summer.  Though apparently only a few days after African Cup of Nations so potentially no rest for the likes of Salah, Mane, Keita etc.

Yep,  Just seen on @JohnBennettBBC that 2021 AFCON will take place during Jan and Feb which means could lose Mane Salah for 6 PL games.  What a pain.

 This has taken a while to post, as I was away for 6 weeks after the final and then getting things sorted upon my return.

My self and the misses were one of the last to leave the stadium and as we were, the stewards were taking a banner down (as no one was about to take it). We asked what they planned on doing with it and they just said it would be 'disposed of' so I said I knew whos it was ( I wanted to try to get it back to it's owner).

So' if any one knows of someone who lost a banner Pm me and describe it and i will return it to it's owner. It is easy to identify as it is a Bespoke design!

We should be grateful that this was played over the winter period before the virus all kicked off as this would’ve been cancelled for sure!!

Isn't the December club world cup cancelled, as an expended tournament is supposed to be scheduled for June next year?

Was a very surreal feeling, having won the final with a father and mother, a young baby and the grandmother in front of us. They all seemed made up for us we'd won it too. Can't believe it was 5 months ago, loved my time in Qatar.

What prize money did we get for winning this, wasn't it £4 million for just turning up, we would have only got £50k for reaching the league cup final, & another £50k for winning it. :o

I think we took £4 million for winning it. Also took 4 million for winning the Super cup.

plus it was the one trophy out there we hadn’t won so far more important to the club, think it was $5m so that’s around right, was more in 2000 though, then it was $6m so that’s more like $9m in today’s money

29 past World Champions, it feels good to be on the list. 

Could be a decent quiz question; What cities have more than one club that have won it? (I make it 6)

Vasco da Gama, Peñarol, Santos, Racing,
Feyenoord, Nacional, Ajax, Independiente, Atlético Madrid,
Boca Juniors, Olimpia, Flamengo, Grêmio, Juventus, River Plate, Porto,
Red Star Belgrade, Vélez Sársfield, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona
Corinthians, Liverpool, São Paulo, Internacional, Milan, Manchester United
Internazionale, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid.
