FIFA Futsal World Cup™
Of the 50 teams that have participated at the FIFA Futsal World Cup™ so far, only four have managed to win the title. The record holder with five titles is the team from Brazil. Together with Spain, who have been world champions twice so far, they have won the first seven editions of the FIFA Futsal World Cup. The two most recent world champions are Argentina, who triumphed in 2016, and Portugal, who secured the title at the most recent edition in 2021. With Brazil, Spain and Argentina, all teams that have participated in all nine finals have also won the title at least once. In fourth place in terms of participations, comes the team from Iran, which has been to the tournament eight times. Its best finish was 3rd place in 2016 in Colombia.
FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup™
The world-famous Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, hosted the first three editions of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup™ as of 2005. It had already hosted seven world beach soccer tournaments in previous years. Although Brazil has always been a power in beach soccer, the host nation failed to win the first tournament organised by FIFA in 2005. In France's only victory at a beach soccer world cup to date, Brazil only managed to place third. However, afterwards the Brazilians went on a winning streak and won the title four times in a row until 2009. The winning streak was interrupted by Russia. The Russians won their first of three titles in 2011. With Portugal winning in 2015 and 2019 a fourth nation was added to the list of beach soccer world champions. The FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, which is now held every two years, offers smaller nations the opportunity to showcase themselves as participants and hosts. Like the tournaments held in Tahiti in 2013 and in the Bahamas in 2017. Tahiti was also able to impress on the pitch and has made it to the final twice so far, in 2015 and 2017.
FIFA Club World Cup™
The FIFA Club World Cup™ is an annual competition between club champions from all continents. The unofficial predecessor of the tournament, which has been held annually since 2005 after an interlude in Brazil in 2000, dates back to the 1960s, when the winners of the CONMEBOL Libertadores and the European Cup played each other. Since FIFA has been organising the tournament, representatives of all confederations have traditionally taken part. The first three editions in 2000, 2005 and 2006 were all won by Brazilian teams. Since then, European teams have dominated the competition. Apart from the 2012 edition, where Corinthians of Sao Paulo were victorious, a team from Europe has triumphed every year. The record winner is the Spanish top club Real Madrid, which has won the title four times so far.
