FIFA President Gianni Infantino has claimed that a new Women’s Club World Cup is being planned in order to shake up the sport.
Infantino revealed that it’s his dream to see a female version of the tournament come to fruition following the creation of the men’s one.
Speaking to L’Equipe, he said: “My dream is also to see the birth of the very first Women’s Club World Cup.
“It’s coming very soon. And it will really revolutionize women’s football.”
The Fifa supremo’s dream will see the top women teams in Europe battle it out with their US counterparts.
The US national team are current World Champions and their domestic sides are also of high quality but rarely go toe to toe with Europe’s top clubs.
And the men’s version of the competition, which Liverpool won in 2019, is also getting a revamp.
It is held every year and usually consists of seven teams, which includes just one from Europe.
But the new format will be made up of 24 teams and seven will be European.
The new-look format was meant to unveiled this year but had to be pushed back 12 months due to Covid.
And Infantino is adamant it will become the best club competiton in the world.
He said: “What I’m sure is that this new competition will eventually become the best club event in the world, and help develop football on all continents.
“It will offer a real possibility for clubs from all regions to reach the highest level while giving the big clubs, especially European ones, a unique playing field in which to compete.”
