The current format of the tournament involves eight teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about one week; the winners of that year's AVC Club Volleyball Championship (Asia), African Clubs Championship (Africa), Men's South American Volleyball Club Championship (South America) and CEV Champions League (Europe), along with the host city's team and a nominated team from North America. The number of teams is increased through wild card invitees.

The current champions are Italy's Trentino, who defeated another Italian club Lube Civitanova 3–1 in the final of the 2018 edition, to win their fifth title in the competition and the first title since 2012. [1] Italian teams have been the most successful, with nine titles.
