The United Arab Emirates will host the Club World Cup in 2009 and 2010, world governing body FIFA announced here on Tuesday.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said the Club World Cup would return to Japan, which has hosted the revamped tournament since 2005, for 2011 and 2012.

Blatter said the UAE's attractive bid and its suitability for the December time slot made it a good choice for competing teams.

He said FIFA would like the 2009 and 2010 tournaments to be played in other UAE cities, not just Abu Dhabi.
