The 2013 FIFA Club World Cup (officially known as the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2013 presented by Toyota for sponsorship reasons) was the 10th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA-organised international club football tournament between the champion clubs from each of the six continental confederations, as well as the national league champion from the host country. It was hosted by Morocco, and played from 11 to 21 December 2013.
There were four countries bidding to host the 2013 and 2014 tournaments (same host for both tournaments):
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates (which hosted the 2009 and 2010 editions in Abu Dhabi)
In October 2011, FIFA said that Iran, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates all withdrew their bids, leaving Morocco as the only bidder. FIFA officially announced Morocco as host on 17 December 2011.

For the second year in a row, goal-line technology was used for the tournament. GoalControl GmbH was chosen as the official goal-line technology provider.
Following successful trials at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup and 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, FIFA approved the vanishing spray to be used by the tournament referees to mark the ten-yard line for the defending team during a free kick.
The draw was held on 9 October 2013 at 19:00 WEST (UTC+1), at the La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakesh, to decide the "positions" in the bracket for the three teams which entered the quarter-finals (champions of AFC, CAF, and CONCACAF).
- For elimination matches, extra time was played. If still tied after extra time, a penalty shoot-out was held to determine the winner.
- For the matches for fifth place and third place, no extra time was played, and a penalty shoot-out was held to determine the winner.
