Fifa Club World Cup 2021 final to be shown live for free on Channel 4 with Chelsea set to battle for mid-season trophy

CHELSEA’s quest to win the Club World Cup will be shown LIVE for FREE in the United Kingdom.

Channel 4 have snapped up the rights to broadcast next week’s tournament live from the United Arab Emirates.

Regular Sunday afternoon viewers of A Place in The Sun will be watching a special sporty edition on Saturday 12 February in the searing Middle East heat.

The final will be live on Channel 4 from 4pm if Chelsea make it through their semi-final tie.

Thomas Tuchel’s side will be hoping to avoid any Hollyoaks-style soap dramas in their quest to become world champions.

Made in Chelsea viewers will be watching a different kind of reality show on Wednesday 9 February with the semi-final live on E4.

Chelsea are yet to discover their semi-final opponents and will face either Al Hilal, Al Jazira or AS Pirae.

Brazilian side Palmeiras have joined Chelsea in being given a bye to the semi-final stage.


Channel 4’s Head of Sport Pete Andrews said: “This is one of the few major honours to have eluded Chelsea so it’d be great if they can make history live on Channel 4.

“We’re delighted to be bringing top-flight football live on free to air terrestrial television, let’s just hope The Blues can go all the way.”

The last non-European side to win the Club World Cup were Corinthians in 2012 – when they beat Chelsea 1-0 in Japan.

Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all brought the trophy back to Europe in recent years.
