Push it back to late July and the European teams can use it as part of their pre-season training. Many are already in the US so host it here.

How will Euro teams qualify: quarter-finalists of preceding Champions League or invite only?

They're already screwing up the club league calendars with the 2022 World Cup finals being played in the winter. Now FIFA want to cause even more disruption to the league schedules in 2021 so they can make even more money.

The European teams will be winners and runners up of the previous 4 Champions League and Europa League finals

Shambles of an entity. We need to scrap FIFA and start again. Their credibility is shot to shit with the bung fiasco for Russia and Qatar World Cups, even though proven they are still holding them there.

Money has ruined the game and it is just continually getting worse.

There's most likely going to be duplicates there, how will they make up the numbers?
I'm sure there are teams like Celtic who will jump to represent 'their' nation. They can represent the UK, Ireland, Palestine, Thailand and world hunger for starters. They won the European cup you know, they deserve to be there.

Power, money, greed, corruption. FIFA should carry that as their motto.
