Serie A to continue with Super Cup in Saudi as part of expansion to 4-team format

March 15 – Serie A will again play its Super Cup in Saudi Arabia next year as the continuation of a deal that began in 2018.

Next season the Super Cup, traditionally played between the winners of Serie A and the Italian Cup, will be played in a new four-team competition format.

Under the new deal, four out of the next six editions will be played in Saudi Arabia. The decision as to whether they will be played as single match finals or a four-team event will be made annually, according to Serie A chairman Lorenzo Casini.

Three out of five of the last competition have been played in the Gulf state under a deal worth a total of €21 million.

The new deal is reportedly worth €23 million if the Super Cup is a four-team competition and €12 million if staged as a one-match final.
