FIFA’s International Federation of Football is launching a series of competitions to give fans the chance to get a taste of the best in world football.
The competition is being launched by the International Federation Football Academy, a consortium of five European clubs with the aim of helping young players get a good grasp of the sport, while also bringing together the best of the big clubs from the continent.
The first round of the competition will run from July 2 to August 12, with the final in November.
The three top clubs from each round will then take on the other two in the second and third rounds, with each club earning the right to play in the finals.
The winners will then qualify for the 2021 FIFA World Cup in Russia, which is expected to be played in the summer of 2022.
In the tournament’s first stage, the European clubs compete in a series games against each other.
The top two clubs from that stage will play each other in the semi-finals.
The top two from each group will then advance to the second round, where the winners of the group stages will meet in the final round.
The winner of the final will face the runner-up in the group.
There is no set date for the final, but the winner of that round will face a second-place finisher in the first round.
As of the end of the first stage last week, the four clubs in the competition had qualified to play each another once more.
They have a combined history of playing at the European Championships, where they have not made it to the finals, having lost to England in the 2013 quarter-finals and Belgium in the 2012 final.
The next two rounds of the competitions will see the four top European clubs take on one another, while the winner from the second or third round will qualify for their first ever appearance in the FIFA World Championships in Brazil in 2018.
