Recently, the new format of the FIFA Club World Cup was presented to the public, which will now be held once every four years with the participation of 32 clubs. However, the clubs themselves apparently did not like the idea.

According to GIVEMESPORT, clubs from the English and Spanish championships intend to boycott the new club World Cup, the first edition of which will be held in the summer of 2025, because of the overloaded football calendar.

Premier League boss Richard Masters and La Liga president Javier Tebas are believed to be at the head of this thinking. Nor do the Professional Footballers' Association of England share the overloading of players.

The issue was discussed at length at FIFPRO's player workload conference on Thursday, where it was stated that players have reached a "breaking point" and the current schedule was labelled cannibalistic.

It has previously been reported that if FIFA does not abandon its plan to reform the club World Cup, the organisation could face legal action from the leagues.
