Morocco To Host 2023 FIFA Club World Cup

Morocco has been appointed as host of the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup, the sport’s world football governing body announced on Friday.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said the annual tournament would be held in Morocco in 2023 and it’s scheduled for February 1-11.

The FIFA Club World Cup features champions of all six-FIFA confederations- Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, CONCACAF, and South America.

Morocco will be represented by the current African Champions League kings Wydad Casablanca in a tournament that was first held in Brazil in 2000 and then annually since 2005.

The North African country hosted the Club World Cup in 2013 and again in 2014, while the most recent edition was hosted by UAE, with Chelsea emerging as champions.

However, the tournament is set for expansion in 2025 where it will feature 32 teams, which will make it look like a World Cup.

“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 FIFA president said.

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