Premier League side Chelsea will represent UEFA as the reigning European champions, and they will play the winner of Al Hilal SFC vs Al Jazira or Auckland City FC in the semifinal round.

African champions Al Ahly are joined by CONCACAF champions Monterrey, Asian champions Al Hilal from Saudi Arabia and Auckland City were nominated by the Oceania conference due to competitions not taking place. UAE champs Al Jazira will feature in the tournament to represent the host nation.

Chelsea and South American champions Palmeiras both have a bye into the semifinal of the tournament which crowns the best club team on the planet.

Bayern Munich are the defending champions, while the last Premier League side to win the Club World Cup was Liverpool in 2019 when they beat Flamengo in Qatar in extra time. Chelsea were runners up in 2012 (they lost the final to Corinthians) in their only previous Club World Cup appearance.

The six champions from each FIFA confederation will assemble in the UAE, plus Al Jazira, as the tournament runs from February 3-12 in Abu Dhabi.

Below is the full schedule, start times, dates and everything else you need for the fixtures.
