  • Intercontinental Cup (1960-2004); in 2017 FIFA officially recognized all of them as official[4] club world champions (de jure) with the same status to the FIFA Club World Cup winners or world champions FIFA.[5][6][2] In synthesis FIFA has two types of world champions, those deriving from the Intercontinental Cup and those deriving from the Club World Cup, the two competitions confer the same title.[7][8][9]
