Fifa has officially announced that the inaugural Women’s Club World Cup is set to debut in January and February of 2026. This 16-team tournament will be a quadrennial event, strategically placed within the European league’s domestic season, bridging the gap between the Women’s Champions League group stages and knockout rounds.

Traditionally commencing in March, the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season in the USA will intersect with this global event. Fifa’s plans for a women’s club competition were initially unveiled in December 2022, later confirmed during a Fifa congress in Bangkok.

Presently, Barcelona reigns as the European champions, NY Gotham FC holds the NWSL title, and Corinthians boasts the Copa Libertadores Femenina crown.

In addition to this landmark tournament, Fifa has greenlit a revamped international match calendar spanning 2026 to 2029. This restructuring aims to afford players more opportunities for rest and recovery by trimming international breaks from six to five.

Gianni Infantino, president of Fifa, emphasized, “The women’s international match calendar and subsequent regulatory adjustments mark a significant stride in our commitment to elevate the women’s game by fostering global competitiveness.”

Concurrently, preparations for the expanded men’s Club World Cup, also slated for a quadrennial schedule, are underway for the upcoming summer.
