FIFA Announces Expanded Club World Cup and New Intercontinental Cup

FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino, has confirmed that the revamped Club World Cup, set to feature 32 teams, will take place from June 15 to July 13 in 2025. Additionally, a new Intercontinental Cup will be played annually starting next year.

The tournament will include all current confederation premier club competition champions, with the UEFA Champions League winner facing a team from an intercontinental playoff.

The announcement has raised concerns among elite-level men’s players, with Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal expressing worries about an increased workload and potential pay cuts due to the new competition. However, the tournament promises to bring together some of the best teams from around the world, offering an exciting prospect for football fans.
