After hosting the 2020 Olympics, Japan was scheduled to host the Club World Cup but decided to relinquish its hosting after talks with FIFA.

The Japan Football Association (JFA) was preparing for the tournament for the first time in five years, but due to coronavirus issues, it was unclear whether the tournament was financially justifiable.
