The 2007 FIFA Club World Cup (officially known as the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2007 presented by FIFA for the winners of each confederation's top continental club tournament.

The trophy was won by Milan, who became the most successful team in the world in terms of international trophies won (18) and the first European team to win the trophy.

Qualified teams

Location of teams of the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup.

The qualified teams were decided during 2007 through the six major continental competitions. The winner of each regional club championship participated in the 2007 Club World Cup. In March 2007, the FIFA executive committee introduced a qualifying playoff between the 2007 OFC Champions League champion and the host nation's 2007 J. League champion, as opposed to previous years, in which the Oceania champions were given direct entry into the tournament.[1] In order to avoid the participation of two teams from the same country, the best-placed non-Japanese team in the AFC Champions League would take the "host" berth if a Japanese team won that competition,[2] which indeed happened as Urawa Red Diamonds won the 2007 AFC Champions League. Also, the fifth-place match was eliminated for this edition.
