FIFA announces in 2010 the first edition of the FIFA Women's Club World Cup. There is still no official date for the tournament, but is expected to happen in April or May. Member of the FIFA Club World Cup Organizing Committee, the Santos Futebol Clube's chairman, Marcelo Teixeira, attended the first meeting of the organization in 2009. The meeting was on march 16 at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. On occasion, Teixeira filed the request for an entity to set up a Women's Club World Cup, in order to further encourage this important modality.

The filed document was addressed to FIFA's President, Joseph Blatter. In the document, Teixeira noted that Blatter himself, in the 4th FIFA Women's Football Symposium in 2009, in Beijing, China, asked that the football world embraced the cause of the women football. "A Women's Club World Cup is a step in Blatter's own idea," he said[1].
In South America, CONMEBOL promotes the first Women's Libertadores Cup and this competition will leave the South American representative for the FIFA Woman's Club World Cup.
