The release of the squad team details for FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2009 is likely to interest those with a Dubai property investment.

It will be the first occasion that the tournament fixtures will take place in the host city.

Seven teams are set to compete in the United Arab Emirates contest, with some matches to take place in Abu Dhabi's Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium and Zayed Sports City.

Earlier this year Jerome Valcke, FIFA secretary general, commented: "We are very much looking forward to the next two years in the United Arab Emirates.

"Football in the country is hugely popular and these are exciting times for the UAE FA."

This year's champions are set to take home $5 million from the contest - set to take place from December 9th to the 19th.

Anyone choosing to attend will get the opportunity to see competitors including TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Estudiantes de La Plata of Argentina and the host country's qualifying team Al Ahli FCD of the UAE among other participants.
