Men’s Club World Cup was founded in 2000

The world football governing body, FIFA, is examining the possibility of introducing a Women’s Club World Cup.

The proposal was floated at the first meeting of the FIFA Task Force for Women’s Football which was chaired by co-opted FIFA Executive Committee member and former Australia international, Moya Dodd.

The men’s Club World Cup was founded in 2000 and the intercontinental competition has been contested every year since 2005. European champion, Bayern Munich, overcame home favourite, Raja Casablanca, to take the 2013 title in Morocco.

Elsewhere at the meeting, which analysed FIFA’s strategy for women’s football in the short and long term, issues of governance, development, marketing, communications and gender equality came under the microscope.

The outcome and proposals of the task force will be presented to the FIFA Committee for Women’s Football and the Women’s World Cup at its next meeting on February 13.

“We are well on track after a very constructive first meeting,” Dodd said. “We now need to implement our proposals and work to bring our views and ideas into reality. FIFA must be the engine of women’s football development and the task force will do its best to succeed in its mission.”
