Every game from the FIFA Club World Cup 2019 will be aired live on BBC platforms.

The competition, which features Champions League winners Liverpool, takes place in Doha next month.

“We’re very excited to broadcast the FIFA Club World Cup and show audiences the best teams in world football across our free-to-air channels,” said Philip Bernie, Head of BBC TV Sport.

“Along with the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championship, FA Cups, Premier League on Match of the Day and Women’s Super League, this competition is a fantastic addition to the BBC’s football portfolio.”

Liverpool’s games are the only ones confirmed for a television transmission, with the other fixtures appearing on the iPlayer and BBC Sport. The last time the North West club took part in the competition, they lost in the final to Sao Paulo.

It all kicks off on December 11th.
