Representatives of the major leagues and professional players' associations are meeting today to express their opposition to holding the Club World Cup with its new system.

The opposition campaign is led by English Premier League President Richard Masters, Professional Players Association President Mahita Molango, and Spanish League President Javier Tebas, according to The Sun newspaper.

This group will pledge to take legal action unless the 32-team tournament, which is scheduled to be held in the United States of America next year, is rescheduled.

FIFA officials ignored previous concerns about players being susceptible to fatigue, but Mulango told The Sun: “Football is killing its own product. Those who run the game need to listen.”

He added: "If they do not do so, then as unions we have a responsibility towards the players to take the necessary measures, and the legal path is the next step."

He continued: "The governing bodies have had every opportunity to engage with us meaningfully on this matter, but they have failed to do so. The current workloads for players are not sustainable, and people realize that the number of matches being pushed into the program does not suit them."

The International Players Association, FIFPro, believes that the scheduling will leave the clubs no choice but to force the stars to play, without giving them the minimum three-week rest stipulated in all professional contracts.
