“The official emblem of the FIFA Club World Cup (Morocco 2022) has been unveiled on the eve of the draw of the event, which will take place this Friday,” writes the governing body of world soccer on its official website.

“The official emblem of this competition, which finds Morocco for the first time since 2014, symbolizes the prestige inherent in the highest level of world club soccer. It is inspired by the glittering trophy brandished each year by the world champion club,” the same source continued.
