Chelsea are due to play in the FIFA Club World Cup this December in Japan, however, Covid-19 complications have disrupted this and the competition has been cancelled at this venue.
Organisers are now frantically trying to seek out a new potential venue to play the competition in, with Qatar looking a likely solution.
The tournament is contested by the champions of the six continental confederations, as reported by ESPN yesterday.

There are now reports of uncertainty and confusion ahead of the tournament, which is far from ideal for Chelsea and all the other teams competing right in the middle of an already very busy and hectic domestic football season, especially with Chelsea’s Champions League involvement as well.
The new venue will need to be sorted out soon so that preparations and planning can be sorted out in advance and the club know what they are doing going forward.
