FIFA Phases Out Confederations Cup, Introduces 24-team Club World Cup

FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Friday confirmed plans to launch an expanded 24-team Club World Cup in 2021 following a meeting in Miami.

The new tournament, which has drawn threats of a boycott from leading European clubs, is to be staged in June-July 2021 instead of the Confederations Cup.

“I am very happy,” Infantino said after confirming plans for the tournament.
