Ancelotti Confirms Real Madrid’s Participation in Expanded Club World Cup

Posted : 10 June 2024

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti clarified on Monday that the Champions League winners will participate in next season's expanded Club World Cup, correcting a misunderstanding from an interview with an Italian newspaper.


Ancelotti posted on social media, "In my interview with Il Giornale, my words about the FIFA Club World Cup have not been interpreted in the way I intended. Nothing could be further from my interest than to reject the possibility of playing in a tournament that I consider to be a great opportunity to continue fighting for great titles with Real Madrid."


Ancelotti had been quoted saying "players and clubs will not participate" in the new tournament and suggesting financial reasons were behind the decision. However, Real Madrid quickly distanced themselves from these remarks, reaffirming their commitment to the competition.


"Real Madrid C. F. would like to announce that at no time has there been any question regarding our participation in the new Club World Cup to be organised by FIFA in the coming 2024/2025 season," the club stated. "Our club will therefore take part, as planned, in this official competition, and we are proud and excited to be involved in it and we will once again inspire our millions of fans all over the world with another trophy." Despite the tournament adding to an already congested calendar, Real Madrid looks forward to competing.
