2024 FIFA Series schedule, date, venues, teams, format, & fixtures

FIFA has introduced a new international competition, called the FIFA Series, to elevate teams from lower world rankings. This initiative, proposed by FIFA president Gianni Infantino in December 2022, was formally announced by the global governing body on Monday, 26 February. The FIFA Series will involve teams from all six continental confederations – UEFA, CONMEBOL, CONCACAF, CAF, AFC, and OFC – engaging in friendly matches against each other.

Notably, the FIFA Series 2024 pilot project is scheduled for March, coinciding with the international window, and will occur across four host countries: Algeria, Azerbaijan, Sri Lanka, and Saudi Arabia. Twenty teams, divided into four groups, have enlisted for the 2024 edition and are designated to compete in specific host nations. Unlike the other hosts, Saudi Arabia won’t be involved in this pilot edition.

FIFA looks forward to the 2026 edition with plans to include additional teams, particularly those of higher rank from all confederations. The organization aims to foster international competition among teams with fewer opportunities to play against those from other confederations, focusing on developing the sport without providing any trophies or prize money. FIFA will fund all travel expenses for participating teams, including players and support staff.
