Template:Infobox football match The 2020 FIFA Club World Cup Final will be the final match of the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup, an international club football tournament hosted by Qatar. It will be the 17th final of the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA-organised tournament between the club champions from each of the six continental confederations, as well as the host nation's league champions.

The final will be contested by the winner of the second semi-final, Egyptian club Al Ahly or German club Bayern Munich, and Mexican club UANL, representing CONCACAF as the reigning champions of the CONCACAF Champions League. It is the first time a team from the CONCACAF region will play in the final.

The match will be played at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan on 11 February 2021.[1] The final was originally scheduled to be played in December 2020, but was moved to February due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the scheduling of the various continental club competitions.[2]
