A important tournament will be held in the United States, Canada, and Mexico in 2025, according to Mexican Football Federation head Yon de Luisa. The three countries of North America will also host the 2026 World Cup, as is already known. The summer 2025 competition will be viewed as a warm-up for the World Cup, nevertheless.
De Luisa allegedly mentioned the 2025 competition in relation to the national team, according to Arnold. This would imply that it will be the Confederations Cup including a few selected national teams. De Luisa said this when discussing important changes to Mexican soccer. At the group stage of the most recent World Cup, Mexico was eliminated. El Tri and Poland had identical final point totals, but Poland’s goal differential was higher. Tata Martino, the manager of Mexico, did not have his contract renewed as a result.
The Club World Cup, however, might also take place in the United States in 2025. The club competition has not yet been assigned a host nation. The United States, though, is apparently competing to host the competition. Prior to the 2026 World Cup, FIFA is quite clear that they want American soccer to continue to grow. Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, said last month that the 2025 Club World Cup would feature 32 participants. The players union and leagues all around the world strongly opposed the proposal. The decision to increase the competition is still being considered, though. The expansion would first require approval from the six confederations.
Rox and Ken discuss if this will be the return of the Confederations Cup and debate if the USMNT is scheduling too many games before the World Cup?
