BREAKING:Morocco to host Club World Cup in February

Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, made the announcement on Friday that Morocco will host the next Club World Cup in February, and that the planned expanded version of the event will now begin in 2025.

At a press conference in Doha, Infantino informed reporters that the tournament, which is returning to Morocco for the third time, will take place from February 1 to February 11, 2023.

Infantino has long wanted to expand the Club World Cup. In 2021, a 24-team competition with eight European teams was scheduled to take place in China. However, the coronavirus pandemic forced the event to be postponed.

According to Infantino, 32 teams would participate in the new tournament, which would begin in 2025.
“We had agreed a few years ago to have a new 24-team men’s Club World Cup,” reads the advertisement. It was supposed to take place in 2021, but because of Covid, it was moved up,” the FIFA president stated.
