The fixtures for the FIFA Club World Cup 2022, which will be played in Morocco from 1 to 11 February 2023, were revealed yesterday.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino was present for the draw and addressed delegates before proceedings got under way.
He thanked Morocco – hosts of the tournament for a third time – and stoked excitement as the countdown continues to discover which side will become champions of the world.
“Congratulations and thank you to Morocco for hosting the champions of all the continents for what will be a very important edition of the FIFA Club World Cup in February,” the FIFA president said.
“When the champions of all the continents meet to crown the champion of the planet, the champion of the world, this is a special occasion, and this will take place in a very special country, in a great football environment,” Infantino added.
“We’re looking very much forward to [coming] to Rabat and to Tangier, to visit an entire country, and to cheer for the champions of all the continents and see who finally will be crowned champion of the world.”
