Rayados will participate in the 2021 FCWC, scheduled for February 2022, in the United Arab Emirates. They will kick off their quest for a first-ever FIFA Club World Cup Final when they clash with the CAF Champions League winners Al Ahly, in the Quarterfinals. The winner of that match will advance to the Semifinals where they will face 2021 Conmebol Copa Libertadores winners, Palmeiras of Brazil.
