USA To Host Expanded 32-team Club World Cup In 2025

The United States of America will play host to the biggest Club World Cup yet, featuring 32 elite men’s teams, in 2025. FIFA, the world football governing body, made the announcement on Friday, with FIFA president Gianni Infantino describing the tournament as the pinnacle of men’s club football.

The tournament, which is expected to take place in June, will feature twelve European clubs, including the last three Champions League winners: Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester City. As yet, no dates have been confirmed for the tournament, but it promises to be a major highlight of the footballing calendar.

The USA is also set to co-host the 2026 World Cup, alongside Canada and Mexico. The European Club Association has backed the plans for the Club World Cup, but the World Leagues Forum has expressed concern over the “unilateral” decision by FIFA to add the event to the calendar.

This will be the 20th edition of the Club World Cup, with Saudi Arabia hosting the 2013 and 2014 editions, as well as the upcoming 2023 tournament. The last edition was won by Real Madrid, who triumphed in Morocco in February 2022.

Football fans around the world will be eagerly anticipating this expanded Club World Cup in 2025, which promises to be a showcase of the very best that the sport has to offer. With the inclusion of more teams and a longer tournament format, there will be plenty of excitement and drama for fans to enjoy. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting event.
