Monterrey will be the team that represents Mexico and Concacaf in the next Club World Cup, after being crowned in the Concachampions against América, thanks to a bear from Sebastián Cáceres in the final, so that the royal team will attend the tournament for the fifth occasion in its history. This will be the first experience in the tournament for Javier Aguirre, who will try to surpass Víctor Manuel Vucetich and Antonio Mohamed, who led Rayados to third place.

For the second year in a row, the Club World Cup passed the date, and instead of being played in December, the tournament will be played at the beginning of 2022 and the venue will be Emitaros Árabes Unidos. The dates have yet to be confirmed, but what is a fact is that the Club World Cup will not interfere with the closing of the Apertura 2021 tournament of Liga MX.

In addition to Monterrey, there are five teams already defined, so there are two more teams to qualify, including the Conmebol champion, who is coming out of the Copa Libertadores. Chelsea will represent UEFA after winning the Champions League, while Africa will be represented by Al-Ahly. Auckland City is to represent Oceania while the home team will be Al-Jazeera. Representatives from Asia remain to be defined, and the corresponding draw to know how the crosses will be.
