FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP Enyimba Misses Out Of 2025 FIFA Club World Cup

Enyimba International, the premier club in Nigeria, would undoubtedly not be there when the 32-team FIFA Club World Cup gets underway in 2025.

Early in the new millennium, the People’s Elephants were the dominant team on the continent, and their success in the previous one gave them a chance to participate in the inaugural African Football League.

In 2025, the newly redesigned Club World Cup will be launched by the World Soccer regulatory body, and there won’t be a Nigerian club participating.

This edition, which is slated to take place in the United States from June 15 to July 13, 2025 (which might possibly affect the date of CAN 2025…), looks to be a magnificent celebration of football that will showcase the talent and diversity of clubs around the world.

The global club champion will be determined by a knockout stage that begins in the round of 16 and consists of matches split into eight groups of four.

The 2025 Club World Cup qualification process is built around a precise method that ensures the participation of the top teams from each confederation based on sporting standards determined by the results of the previous four Champions League seasons.

There are a set number of positions in each confederation:

Twelve clubs represent UEFA (Europe), six represent CONMEBOL (South America), and four each represent the AFC (Asia), CAF (Africa), and CONCACAF (North, Central America, and the Caribbean).

One spot is awarded to OFC (Oceania), and the host country, the United States, automatically qualifies a team, bringing the total to 32.

Al Ahly SC’s two Champions League championships from 2021 and 2023 have earned them official qualification.

Because Wydad Athletic Club Casablanca won the continental championship in 2022, they too have their ticket in their pocket.

The remaining two tickets will be played in the African League of Champions 2023–2024, which is presently in its quarterfinals:

Mamelodi Sundowns, with their significant advantage in points, are very close to qualifying.

If none of the top three teams win the current African Champions League, Esperance Sportive de Tunis will be in a good position to guarantee their spot.

In the quarterfinals of the LdC 2023/24, TP Mazembe, ASEC Mimosas, Petro Atletico, and the Tanzanian teams Simba and Young Africans are all too far behind to have any chance of qualifying via the ranking and will only be able to compete for a spot if they win the title on May 25.
