The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) scheduled the draw for the 2025 Club World Cup for January. The tournament, set to take place in the United States, will feature a new format with 32 participating teams.

The revamped Club World Cup will be held in the summer of 2025, beginning on Sunday, June 15, and concluding with the final match on Sunday, July 13.

According to The Times, FIFA has decided to conduct the draw in January to finalize the match schedules for the participating clubs.

The 2025 Club World Cup will follow the same format as the FIFA World Cup for national teams. The 32 teams will be divided into eight groups of four, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the Round of 16. The tournament will then proceed through knockout stages until the final.

The total prize money for the 2025 Club World Cup is expected to reach €2.5 billion. Each participating club will receive between £40 and £50 million for their involvement, with potential increases for those advancing to the later stages.

Representing Africa in the 2025 Club World Cup will be Al Ahly, Espérance de Tunis, Wydad Casablanca, and Mamelodi Sundowns.
