The FIFA Club World Cup is an annual arrangement done by FIFA themselves as a tournament that essentially incorporates the “best” team/club from each available continent to FIFA, who then pit these champions of their respective continents against one another.

Now, according to reports from SPORT, FIFA is planning on launching a brand new Super Club World Cup. A hypothetical tournament that would take place every four years, akin to the FIFA World Cup itself, and would include a multitude of teams from each continent rather than a singular representative.

The inclusion of the teams that would end up being eligible to qualify for the tournament itself would be based upon each continent’s respective rankings. In the case of Europe, the UEFA coefficients will dictate what teams qualify for the tournament itself. The tournament itself is currently scheduled to commence in 2025, and will also incorporate the continental champions of each year till then as a different qualification from the regular coefficients.

This means that even though as it stands, the current coefficients mean the teams that are eligible to represent Europe in this Super Club World Cup are as follows in no particular order: Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, PSG, and Liverpool.

Yet, since Real Madrid won the Champions League in 2022 and would automatically be qualified, their placement by means of coefficient would go to the next best-ranked team, which in this case would be Italian side Juventus.

Moreover, FIFA has also limited how many teams per continent can be sent forth to represent the said continent. The sorting is as follows: 12 teams from Europe/UEFA, CONMEBOL with 6, Asia/AFC with 4, CONCACAF with 4, OFC with a singular representative allowed and lastly the host themselves will automatically qualify.

FC Barcelona themselves have won the Club World Cup an impressive 3 times and will be aiming to qualify for this upcoming Super Club World Cup in what is a very attainable objective.
