The tournament marked the first time in its history that a team from outside Europe or South America reached the final, after Africa's TP Mazembe of DR Congo defeated South America's Internacional of Brazil in the semi-finals. However, Mazembe were unable to pass the final hurdle, as they lost 3–0 to Italy's Internazionale (representing Europe) in the final. It was Inter's third world title, having won the Club World Cup's predecessor – the Intercontinental Cup – in 1964 and 1965.

However, for the fifth-place and third-place matches, no extra time would be played, and if tied the match would go straight to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.
