2012 FIFA Club World Cup – Cheering for Chelsea in Japan

The 2012 FIFA Club World Cup will be held in Japan and starts on December 6 with the finals set to take place on 16 December 2012. Other than this being a football tournament being held in Japan I am extra excited because my favourite football team – Chelsea Football Club will also be participating. Chelsea FC qualified for the Club World Cup after winning the Champions League earlier this year and will be aiming to add more silverware to their collection.

The 7 teams participating in the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup are:

  • Al-Ahly SC
  • Sanfrecce Hiroshima
  • Ulsan Hyundai
  • Chelsea FC
  • CF Monterrey
  • Auckland City FC
  • Corinthians

  1. I hate to be a spoiler, but it’s going to be a tough up hill battle for Chelsea without their team captain John Terry, who is still recovering from a knee injury. He will not be with the team for tomorrow’s Premier League game against Sunderland, so it’s very doubtful he will join the team in Japan. Daniel Sturridge is not expected to play either, due to a hamstring injury. This is why I say it’s going to be a tough up hill battle for Chelsea.

    They are going to need every available body they can get in Japan if they have to face Mexico’s Monterrey team in the semi-finals on 12/13/12 in Yokohama. I wish them all the best!
