Morocco To Host 2023 FIFA Club World Cup

FIFA has chosen Morocco to host the 2023 Club World Cup, which will take place in February. A bigger, 32-team edition will debut in 2025.

Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, announced it on Friday. According to the Associated News, Infantino informed reporters at a press conference in Doha that the tournament would run from February 1 to February 11, 2023.

The customary seven-team competition will feature Real Madrid, the European champion, Flamengo, the South American champion, and Seattle Sounders, the first American team to win the CONCACAF Champions League.

The major soccer competition will be held in Morocco after the country’s thrilling and inspirational World Cup journey, which ended with their elimination in the semifinals in Qatar.

It will be one of the last seven-team editions for continental champions with an expanded, month-long tournament planned to start in 2025.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said the intended change was “making it really like a World Cup.”

He said, “We had agreed a few years ago to have a new 24-team men’s Club World Cup. It should have taken place in 2021 but was postponed because of Covid.”

“The new competition will take place in 2025 and will feature 32 teams, making it really like a World Cup.”

Morocco hosted the Club World Cup in 2013 and again in 2014, while the most recent edition was held in the United Arab Emirates in February, with Chelsea lifting the trophy.
