Where to watch Club World Cup 2023: Live stream, TV channel for FIFA tournament featuring Man City

The 2023 FIFA Club World Cup will be the final time the competition is played out in its current format ahead of a controversial expansion in 2025.

FIFA’s decision to increase the number of teams competing to 32 has been met with a mixed response, with the 2024 tournament cancelled as FIFA prepares to unveil a new-look tournament in two years’ time.

Premier League attention on the 2023 edition will be focused on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, and their club debut on this stage, following a first Champions League title win in 2023.

Copa Libertadores winners Fluminense will also be taking part, as will Al Ittihad of the Saudi Pro League.

The Sporting News has the full details on how to watch the tournament, plus key information on fixture dates, venues and qualified teams.
