The live draw for the FIFA Club World Cup will take place at midnight on Friday (NZT), deciding who Auckland City will play if they overcome Egyptian club Ahly in the opening game.
Legendary Moroccan international Noureddine Naybet (52) will assist with the draw that will dictate the tournament schedule.
Auckland City already know their opening game, as they meet Egyptian Premier League leaders Al Ahly in a sudden death fixture on February 1.
Naybet, a former defender for Tottenham Hotspur and Spanish club Deportivo Lar Coruña, will make the draw to decide whether the winners then meet Al Hilal, winners of the 2021 AFC Champions League, or Seattle Sounders, winners of the 2022 Concacaf Champions League.
The draw will then dictate the potential semi-finalists.
The draw will be held at the Mohammed VI Football Academy in Salé, Rabat, at noon (local time) which is midnight (NZT). The draw procedures can be downloaded here >>>>
