FIFA announces the host Nation for the 2025 Club World Cup
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association ( FIFA) has announced the United States of America as the host nation for the 2025 Club World Cup.
The Council unanimously appointed the United States as the host of the new and expanded 32-team FIFA Club World Cup at its meeting held by videoconference in Switzerland on Friday, June 23, 2023.
The decision to give the hosting rights to the United States was because of its infrastructure and service requirements, as well as broader strategic objectives for the tournament.
The President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino said the United States is the ideal venue to kick off the new format for the competition.
"The FIFA Club World Cup 2025 will be the pinnacle of elite professional men’s club football, and with the required infrastructure in place together with a massive local interest, the United States is the ideal host to kick off this new, global tournament. With some of the world’s top clubs already qualified, fans from every continent will be bringing their passion and energy to the United States in two years’ time for this significant milestone in our mission to make football truly global."
This decision means that Americans will enjoy total football in the next four years from the Copa America in 2024, the Club World Cup in 2025, and the Men's World Cup in 2026.
