Real Madrid confirm participation in 2025 Club World Cup 

Real Madrid confirm participation in 2025 Club World Cup 

Real Madrid's Manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has clarified the comments he made about the team's participation at the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup, as the Italian was quoted as saying that the European champions will not honour the revamped tournament.

Ancelotti spoke with Italian newspaper Il Giornale in an interview which was released on Monday. 

But the club, in a statement on their website, has confirmed that they will grace the event next summer.

"Real Madrid 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.

"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", the club said.

In the interview with Il Giornale, Ancelotti was quoted as saying: "FIFA can forget it, footballers and clubs will not participate in that tournament.

"A single Real Madrid match is worth 20 million and FIFA wants to give us that amount for the whole cup. Negative. Like us, other clubs will refuse the invitation."

The European Club Association (ECA) had distanced itself from Ancelotti's interview remarks.
