Real Madrid to vie for more success at the 2026 FIFA World Club Cup


Iconic Spanish club set to stride the global stage in search of further glory

Europe’s most decorated club, a well-oiled machine currently under the stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti, is hoping to replicate its domestic and continental success on the global stage when they take part in Mundial de Clubes FIFA 25™ (FIFA Club World Cup 2025™).

Read on as FIFA turns the spotlight on one of the world’s most popular teams, highlighting their path to the inaugural club extravaganza in the USA next year and some of their most iconic players.

How they qualified

The Spanish giants stamped their ticket to the inaugural FIFA Club World Cup 2025 by winning the 2021/2022 edition of the UEFA Champions League, seeing off Liverpool in the final on 28 May 2022.

That triumph was the club’s record 14th European Cup/UEFA Champions League title and featured unforgettable knockout stage victories against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in front of their adoring fans at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The most spectacular of these came in their semi-final clash with Manchester City. After losing the away leg 4-3, Madrid were 1-0 down in the 89th minute, only for Rodrygo to net a late brace to force extra time, during which Karim Benzema struck the winner from the penalty spot.

In the final against Liverpool, Vinicius Junior scored the game’s only goal at Paris’s Stade de France to continue the club’s love affair with the competition.
