FIFA Women's Club World Cup
FIFA Women's Futsal World Cup
The news comes as president Gianni Infantino outlines his plans for the growth of the game at a news conference on the eve of the men's World Cup final. In the post, FIFA described the launch of both tournaments as "exciting news" although specific details are still to be revealed. So far there has never been an official tournament involving Central American, South American and European teams coming together.
It sees seven sides competing for the title, the six continental champions and the host nation's national champions. However, the women's competition is expected to see multiple teams from the same continent participate.
A statement from FIFA read: "In establishing the details of the new international match calendars, due consideration shall be given to the players’ health and well-being as a primary goal. All of the above key strategic principles will be detailed in consultation with the relevant stakeholders in the coming months."
