Chelsea are expected to know their opponents for the Fifa Club World Cup later this afternoon as next year’s tournament draw takes place.

The Blues were crowned European Champions when they beat English rivals Manchester City in the Champions League final in June and qualified to be the UEFA representative at the tournament.

Chelsea also entered the tournament in 2012 after beating Bayern Munich to win the Champions League for the first time. On this occasion, they reached the final but lost to the Brazilian Corinthians.

The competition will take place in February next year in the United Arab Emirates, after being postponed from 2021 due to Covid’s disruption in the football schedule.

Here’s all you need to know …

Which teams will play in the Club World Cup?

Seven teams will participate in the tournament, six of them as representatives of their respective continental competitions and one as a representative of the host country. They are:

  • Chelsea (UEFA)
  • Palmeiras (CONMEBOL)
  • Al-Hilal (AFC)
  • Al Ahly (CAF)
  • Monterrey (CONCACAF)
  • Auckland City (OFC)
  • Al Jazeera (host)

Who can face Chelsea?

Chelsea and Palmeiras will not enter the tournament until the semi-finals and, therefore, could face one of the other five teams depending on the results of the previous rounds.

Al Jazeera has already been confirmed to face Auckland City in the first round, with the winners set to join Al Hilal, Al Ahly and Monterrey in the second round.

The full course of the tournament will be drawn after the draw, meaning Chelsea will know their potential opponents.
