Of course you want to show previous winners in your application. Until now, the winners of the AFC Champions League (Asia), CONCACAF Champions Cup (North, Central America and Caribbean), CAF Champions League (Africa), CONMEBOL Libertadores (South America), OFC Champions League (Oceania) and UEFA Champions League (Europe) have participated in a knock-out tournament.

Real Madrid is the record holder for most titles, winning the cup on five occasions. In total, the Spanish teams won eight times (the most for any nation). England has the largest number of teams winning the tournament, with four different winners. Manchester City won the 2023 final, beating Fluminense 4-0.


Toni Kroos has the most Club World Cup titles, with six trophies. It shouldn’t be a surprise that another Real Madrid player is the top scorer. With seven goals, it is Cristiano Ronaldo, who is often regarded as one of the best players ever to kick a ball. Real Madrid scored the most goals as a team (40) and won the most matches in the history of the tournament (12).

The record holder for most appearances for a single player is Hussein El Shahat, who has played 15 matches. Auckland City has participated in eleven different tournaments, which is the current record for clubs. Al Ahly has played most matches in the tournament with 25 matches. As you can imagine, some of these records might be broken soon with the new format.

Club World Cup 2025 changes

Stay ahead of the curve with insights into the latest changes and updates for the FIFA Club World Cup 2025. FIFA decided the Club World Cup needed a spark to ignite a new image. Ever since 2016, there have been talks about expanding the number of clubs participating in the Club World Cup. On December 16th 2022 FIFA announced that the new format of the Club World Cup would be starting in 2025. The United States will host this edition as a prelude to the World Cup in 2026. Instead of being a knockout tournament, it will include a group stage of eight groups of four teams.

Mundial de Clubes 2025 teams

So, the Mindual de Clubes sounds nice. But what teams are actually in the tournament? Not all teams are qualified, but we already have a list with certainties.

In total 32 teams will participate. Obviously, you need to show all of them including the players in your application if you want your fans to be enjoyed with everything from the Club World Cup. Check out how to create the perfect team page on our documentation pages.

How to qualify for the Mundial de Clubes

Whether your club hails from Europe, South America, Africa, Asia, North America, or Oceania or represents the host nation, clubs from all regions can qualify for the Club World Cup.

It hinges on the performance in the major club tournaments of each confederation over the past four seasons, such as the Champions League or Copa Libertadores. Points are awarded from the group stage onward based on a specific methodology set by FIFA:

  • 3 points for a victory
  • 1 point for a draw
  • 3 points for advancing to each subsequent stage of the competition

For instance, let’s consider Fluminense, champions of the Copa Libertadores 2023. They secured their title by defeating Boca Juniors in the tournament’s final in South America. Fluminense won three matches during the group stage, drew once, and lost twice, accumulating 10 points.

In the knockout rounds, they achieved five victories and two draws, further adding to their tally. Additionally, they earned 12 points for progressing through the stages of the Copa Libertadores 2023. In total, Fluminense amassed 39 points for their performance in the tournament.

Qualifying for UEFA Clubs

Qualifying for the Club World Cup is slightly different for European teams because the group stages of this year’s UEFA Champions League are concluded, and three full CL campaigns are already being played and completed. UEFA has already implemented a club ranking coefficient system, and FIFA has specified a methodology to enhance competitiveness:

  • 2 points for a win
  • 1 point for a draw
  • 4 points for reaching the group stage
  • 5 points for advancing to the Round of 16
  • 1 point for progressing through each subsequent stage of the competition

For example, consider Manchester City’s journey in the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League, where they clinched the coveted prize under Pep Guardiola’s leadership.

Manchester City entered directly into the group stages, earning four points. They secured four victories and two draws, accumulating 10 points during the group-stage matches.

They received five more points after securing a spot in the Round of 16. As they progressed to the final, they gained three more points. In the knockout stages, they achieved four wins and three draws, adding 11 points to their tally.

In summary, Manchester City accrued 33 points for their triumph in Europe’s major club tournament.
