Due to cancellation of a team, competition is shifted

Just 17 nights before the start, the Oceania representative formally has withdrew their participation in the Club World Cup event. As the virus still poses a big threat and because of the strict rules in the country, this is the only reason of why Auckland city cancelled their trip when the club will return back home in New Zealand. Considering that the team was awarded this place and is not an actual winner of the confederation (as their Champions league did not finish mainly due to travel restrictions caused by the disease), no new replacement is introduced.
So, instead of 01, the tournament in Qatar is going to commence on 04 February. Playing three nights later from the original schedule, the host Al-Duhail now goes directly into the second round without a fight. Its opponent will be known on 19 January when the draw is going to be made (where basically from the bowls have to come only three names who will comprise the second phase).
