The 2014 FIFA Club World Cup (officially known as the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2014 presented by Toyota for sponsorship reasons) was the 11th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA-organised international club football tournament between the champion clubs from each of the six continental confederations, as well as the national league champion from the host country. It was hosted by Morocco for the second year in a row, and played from 10 to 20 December 2014.

Real Madrid won their first FIFA Club World Cup after defeating San Lorenzo 2–0 in the final, and their fourth world club title counting the 1960, 1998 and 2002 Intercontinental Cups, equaling Milan's record.

Host bids

There were four countries bidding to host the 2013 and 2014 tournaments (same host for both tournaments):

In October 2011, FIFA said that Iran, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates all withdrew their bids, leaving Morocco as the only bidder. FIFA officially announced Morocco as host on 17 December 2011.

On 21 August 2014, FIFA issued a statement reconfirming Morocco as the host, despite recent rumours that a change in venue might be sought due to the 2014 West Africa Ebola virus outbreak. Morocco had cancelled its hosting of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations due to fears of Ebola, but vowed to host the Club World Cup as no entrants would be from the countries with the most severe Ebola outbreaks.
