Saudi Arabia’s First FIFA Club World Cup All Set For Kick-off


November 7, 2023

The Fifa Club World Cup breaks new ground next month when it takes place for the first time in Saudi Arabia. 

In another first, European champions Manchester City debut at the tournament, and will feature alongside the likes of hosts Al Ittihad, Egypt’s Al Ahly and South American champions Fluminense. The Brazilian side were confirmed on Saturday as the final team to seal their spot in Jeddah.

The Fifa Club World Cup is a seven-team tournament bringing together the champions of the six continental confederations and the host nation’s most recent league winners. 

However, next month’s tournament represents the last time it will be played in its current format; as the next edition, in 2025, will be expanded to 32 teams, and the United States will host.
