LONDON: The 2023 Club World Cup will take place in Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, soccer's world governing body FIFA said on Monday.
The decision was made following a FIFA delegation visit to Jeddah last week to assess ongoing preparations for the tournament.
"We are delighted that Jeddah, with its state-of-the-art facilities and reputation for hosting major international sports events, has been selected as host city for the FIFA Club World Cup," President of SAFF Yasser Al Misehal said.
The tournament, which will be played from December 12-22, will be held in Saudi Arabia for the first time, as previously announced in February. Agencies
