The Club World Cup is the most important club competition organized by FIFA. Teams from all over the world participate in it and here we will tell you how the participating teams qualify.
This year will see the 19th edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, the most important tournament at club level organized by football’s highest governing body in the world. Here we tell you how different participants earn their place to participate in this important club tournament.
This year will be the year corresponding to 2022. Usually this tournament is held at the end of the year. However, due to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, all competitions taking place during this period had to be suspended and postponed.
This, of course, affected the conduct of the tournament that will be played this year. Real Madrid, Flamengo, Al Ahly are some of the teams that will try to become champions. In the case of the “Merengues” it could be their fifth title and in the case of the South Americans they hope to be the fourth Conmebol team to win this tournament.
Club World Cup qualification
Not any team can play this tournament. Although from 2025 the current format could change and include more teams, for the moment the number of participants is very small. The condition to be able to play this tournament is to be continental champions. The exception is the host country; whose champions also qualifies for the tournament without having to be a continental champion.
