FIFA is facing the threat of legal action from domestic leagues and player unions if there is no rescheduling of the 2025 Club World Cup.

A letter to FIFA president Gianni Infantino, seen by AFP, claims the sport’s worldwide schedule is now “beyond saturation”.

It warns calendar changes including the new 32-team Club World Cup – scheduled to take place in the United States in June and July 2025 – have created “economic harm” to domestic leagues and pushed players “beyond their limits”.

The letter urges FIFA’s ruling council to reschedule the Club World Cup and re-open talks on the international calendar for the years up to 2030.
