Sound Of Football Podcast 237 - The World Club Cup

Today marks the start of the 2015 FIFA World Club Cup, which in case you didn't know is an annual knock-out tournament contested by the six confederation Champions and a host nation's Champions. You'd imagine that such an event would attract a lot of interest and be accompanied by a huge fanfare but here in the UK at least the competition hasn't even been picked up for any TV coverage.

Why is there so little regard for this competition? Is it the format or is it that it just reeks of FIFA? Terry, Graham and Jan discuss this year's tournament, the last FIFA tournament before the emergency meeting in February, and try to work out why no one cares about it.
