I have created a realistic 32 team FIFA Club World Cup as scheduled in real life that's happening in 2025. This tournament has been a nightmare to create on the original ID number of 121092 in the game. Issues with trying to arrange host nations, fixtures, stadiums and awards etc are fixed with this trophy, which caused me to duplicate the trophy to break the cycle and create a new ID number of 2000228931.

 

The tournament draw is on July 4th and starts on July 6th. Group games finish on the 17th. The last 16 Knockout Round on the 20th, Quarter-Finals on the 25th, Semi-Finals on the 29th, Third-Place Play-Off on August 1st and Final on August 3rd. I have tried to condense the final stages closer together but have tried all different permutations and it’s the best I can achieve. 

 

The tournament starts in 2022 for one season with designated teams then from 2023 every two years. I still had issues with breaking the ID number with host nations and stadiums so I decided to create one host nation every tournament [United States] whose stadiums occupy the Third Place Play Off and Final. Each group has been designated a Country or nation with specific stadiums for each group. The Round Of Sixteen, Quarter-Finals & Semi-Finals has been designated stadiums from around the world. The Group stadiums and play-offs for every tournament are as follows;

 

Group A:  [United Kingdom] Croke Park, Celtic Park, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Principality Stadium, London Stadium, Wembley.

Group B:  [Brazil & Argentina]  Morumbi, El Gasometro, Arena BRB, Estadio Centenario, Mas Monumental, Maracana.

Group C:  [Europe]  Estadio Da Luz, Stade De France, Olimpico, Santiago Bernabeu, Delli Alpi, Spotify Camp Nou.

I have also created a tournament to run in the years the FIFA Club World Cup is not played.

The tournament structure as regards to stadiums follows the same structure as the FIFA Club World Cup and is as devised as follows:

 

2024 onwards every 2 years;

 

Pot 1:  Europe [8 teams]  Previous winners or runners-up of Champions League, Europa League & Europa Conference League.

Pot 2:  South America [8 teams] Previous winners or runners up of Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamerica, Supercopa Brazil, Argentina & Uruguay.

*If you would like the graphics I have create for the FIFA Europa Champions Cup please message me. The backgrounds, logos etc I use for the FIFA Club World Cup are not mine to share.

 

**Both tournaments have been tested in the Pre-Game Editor to 2041 and work fine.

 

***Some dates for competitions might differ depending on what competitions you have loaded.

 

****Some stadiums I have used in the Pre-Game editor might have changed their name in the game.

 

 

Please enjoy and if you have any ideas to improve the tournaments drop me a line and I will try to incorporate these into the games.
