African teams are vying for the final spots in FIFA’s upcoming Mundial de Clubes FIFA, a 32-team club world cup competition that will make its debut in the US in 2025.

Wydad Casablanca of Morocco and Al Ahly of Egypt, the most recent CAF Champions League winners, have already secured two of the continent’s four qualifying spots.

Al Ahly secured their spot by winning the biggest club league in Africa in 2022–2023.

Wydad, on the other hand, qualified with their Champions League victory in 2021–2022, guided by legendary coach Walid Regragui.

FIFA confirmed the two African teams (Al-Ahly and Wydad) in the twenty-team list of clubs who have qualified for the competition in the USA; the other twelve spots will be filled at the end of the current season.

The two remaining African slots will go to the winners of the current 2023/24 Champions League campaign and the highest-ranked side based on FIFA’s club coefficient rankings.

Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa and Esperance of Tunisia are the only two teams left in the running to take that ranking spot in the event that Wydad or Ahly win the CAF Champions League this year.

However, they will have to wait to find out who wins the Champions League trophy, as Wydad and Al Ahly have both advanced to the quarterfinals without incident.

In just over a year, African football will have a formidable foursome of representatives at the first Mundial de Clubes FIFA, whatever the outcome.
