Saudi Arabia To Host Spanish Super Cup Until 2022
By Community | November 12, 2019
The Spanish Football Federation have agreed a deal which will see the Spanish Super Cup held in Saudi Arabia for the next three years.
Spain’s Super Cup has been revamped this year to include four teams playing a semi-final and final, with the 2020, 2021 and 2022 editions all now to be held in the middle-east.
It is reported that the cost the Spanish Football Federation will receive for holding this event in the country will be in the region of €120 million.
Four teams will now contest the Super Cup, rather than the current format which had seen the winners of the league face off against the Copa Del Rey victor over two legs. In this edition they will play a semi-final and final between the four competing sides.
The deal could be seen as a slight surprise given the opposition previously shown from some in Spain, including LaLiga president Javier Tebas, to holding fixtures in a country with some controversial human rights laws.
