AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Auckland City FC has informed FIFA that, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and related quarantine measures required by the New Zealand authorities, the club will be unable to participate in the FIFA Club World Cup 2021™.

Club president Ivan Vuksich said the decision was not taken lightly.

"We're obviously bitterly disappointed that circumstances have put participation beyond our reach for the second year in a row. A lot of hard work and effort went into preparing to compete in the UAE, so to be unable to go is a blow."

Auckland City FC were also forced to withdraw from last year's edition of the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar because of the effect of Covid-19 border restrictions in New Zealand.

The FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2021™ is scheduled for February, 2022.
