The FIFA Referees Committee has announced the match officials who will be in charge at the forthcoming FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020™.

Seven referees and 12 assistant referees have been selected for the tournament and, together with them, FIFA has also selected seven video match officials (VMOs) to operate the VAR during the tournament.

The appointment of the female trio led by Edina Alves Batista continue the path started at the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, where Swiss referee Esther Staubli officiated one game, followed by Uruguayan referee Claudia Umpierrez who officiated two games at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019.

All of the selected match officials will complete their final preparations in Qatar the week before the first match kicks off. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, FIFA and the host country will provide the required safeguards to protect the health and safety of all involved in the competition.

The draw to finalise the detailed pairings will take place in Zurich on 19 January at 16:00 CET.

The FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020™ will take place in Doha between 1 and 11 February 2021. The final will be played at the Education City Stadium on 11 February.

Interesting possibilities for the remaining appointments. Given that there are 7 referees & 7 games, will FIFA be "brave" enough to appoint the female trio to a meaningful game - my fear is that they'll be appointed to the 5th/6th game but I would hope that FIFA will appoint them to the Bayern Munich "semi". There have been snide comments in other forums about the competence/ability of the Tahiti referee who apparently referees mainly in lower levels of the French league system - so perhaps he'll be assigned to 4th official duties & one referee will end up with 2 games.

Assuming that FIFA appoint from "neutral" federations &/or ensure that no referee meets the same team twice, I predict after the initial appointments of Mex v Kor - URU & EGY v QAT - GUA the games will be
loser of MEX/KOR v loser of EGY/QAT (5th v 6th) - TAH 
BRZ v winner of MEX/KOR - NED
GER v winner of EGY/QAT - BRZ
3rd place - SEN
Final - UAE

I'm sure that there'll be political games behind the scenes! (nearly all) the games will be live on BBC1.

If FIFA remain with usual convention then I think your predictions will be spot on.
None of the referees is that well known (outside their own confederation) so an opportunity for all.
In some ways you would like to see the Asian/African officials used on the Semi Finals but as it is so often that the South American and European teams make the final, it makes sense to use their officials in the SFs.
Can hardly appoint on merit if your first game is the 3rd place play off!

During last edition, the Qatari referee Al-Jassim handled the final without any previous game :) All politics!

I think that FIFA is already brave enough to appoint the female trio to a men's tournament. She should be appointed to the 5th place match as a safe choice. And honestly after seeing her on the WWC on 2019, I believe that 5th game match is the only option.
I know that I know nothing

That was my point. Games are almost certainly preallocated

Tried watching the first 2 games but the theatricals whenever there was, or threatened to be, contact made both games a yawn-fest. Couldn't really fault either referee, but if this is what we're going to endure in the 2022 WC ..... Not that we want, or need, serious injuries but it was frustrating.

Impressed by the speed of VAR decisions &/or advice for the referee to view the monitor. Seemingly quicker than Stockley Park.Technology?
