The 11-day tournament will see Liverpool trying to add to their trophy cabinet ahead of continental champions from Africa Esperance Sportive de Tunis, Asia's Al Hilal, CONCACAF's Monterrey, Oceania's Hienghene Sport, South America's CR Flamengo and Qatar's Al-Sadd Sports Club as host country.

It's the latest addition to the Optus football stable joining the EPL, World Cup, Women's World Cup, Euros 2020, UEFA Champions League, Europa League and the FAWSL.

It's understood the Singapore-owned company is also looking at adding even more overseas-based tournaments for its 700,000 subscribers in the next few months too.

“We are extremely pleased to add this tournament to our football schedule,” said Optus Director of Sport Richard Bayliss.

“Broadcasting Liverpool’s sixth Champions League triumph was a massive moment for Optus Sport.

"It will be a privilege for us to show the Reds’ attempt to overcome the best of South America, Asia, North America and Africa.

"Brazil’s Flamengo had a stunning Copa Libertadores win in November, so they too will enter the World Cup in ominous form.

“These new rights show our commitment to showing Australians the best clubs from around the world on Optus Sport.”
