Barça, Real Madrid favor increasing number of Club World Championship participants

Many of those participating have already expressed hostility to the plan.

There would be 12 clubs from Europe and Fifa's preferred option for the first edition of the tournament is to invite those clubs who have won at least three Champions Leagues or European Cups. It is not clear which clubs from other continents might be invited to take part.

Infantino says he has an offer of $25 billion over 12 years on the table for the two competitions from a group of investors, which the Financial Times has identified as SoftBank from Japan and the governments of China and Saudi Arabia.

The new competition would see the scrapping of the current Club World Cup, held annually in December, along with the Confederations Cup which is held in the summer prior to a World Cup.

The European participants could make between $50 million and $80 million each.

Barcelona's board of directors said the tournament would be "exciting, dynamic, inclusive and prestigious".

Barcelona and Real Madrid are said to have welcomed the proposals with Barcelona describing the tournament as an opportunity for clubs "to contribute to the growth of their brands".

A Federation Internationale de Football Association briefing document on the project said clubs would share prize money totalling 75 per cent of at least USD3 billion revenue from each Club World Cup edition which would be guaranteed by a consortium of investors.

Europe's top domestic competitions, including the English Premier League and Spain's La Liga, have also opposed FIFA's plans.
