Including the current edition, Japan has now hosted the FIFA Club World Cup on six occasions. It first welcomed the continents’ finest to its shores back in 2005 and since then has witnessed victorious campaigns by Sao Paulo, Internacional, AC Milan, Manchester United and Barcelona.

Later this week, the country will see the coronation of the 2012 champions, whose fans will doubtless be heading home with indelible memories of a decisive move or goal they witnessed at the stadiums or the sight of their captain hoisting the trophy into the sky amid the flashes of the assembled photographers.
