Press Releases from FIFA – June 23, 2023
Today the FIFA Council announced unanimously the 2025, and the first edition of the FIFA Club World Cup will take place in the United States with 32 teams from all over the world.
The decision was reached based on the United States’ position as a proven leader in staging global events and because it would allow FIFA to maximize synergies with the delivery of the FIFA World Cup 2026™, to the benefit of both tournaments and the development of football in the North American region. As a next step, FIFA will engage with the relevant stakeholders to finalize the dates, venues and match schedule of this new tournament.
“The FIFA Club World Cup 2025 will be the pinnacle of elite professional men’s club football, and with the required infrastructure in place together with a massive local interest, the United States is the ideal host to kick off this new, global tournament,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. “With some of the world’s top clubs already qualified, fans from every continent will be bringing their passion and energy to the United States in two years’ time for this significant milestone in our mission to make football truly global.” The slot allocation per confederation and the key principles of access were already confirmed by the FIFA Council earlier this year.
