  • FIFA’s revamped Club World Cup planned for 2025 and set to feature 32 teams will be played from June 15 to July 13, while a new Intercontinental Cup will be played yearly from next year, Gianni Infantino, the head of world soccer’s governing body, said on Sunday.
  • FIFA had announced an expanded Club World Cup earlier this year and unanimously voted to name the United States as hosts for the first edition of the event.
  • The Council met in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to approve the dates for the Club World Cup and confirmed next year’s Intercontinental Cup would have the UEFA Champions League winner playing a team that comes through intercontinental playoffs.
  • “The tournament will feature all current confederation premier club competition champions,” FIFA President Infantino said.
  • “(It) concludes with a final at a neutral venue between the UEFA Champions League winners and the winners of an intercontinental play-off between clubs from the other confederations.”
  • The Council also agreed that Chile will host the Under-20 World Cup in 2025 while Poland will host the Under-20 Women’s World Cup in 2026.
