Spanish Supercopa to move to Saudi Arabia for six seasons

The Spanish FA (RFEF) are in talks with the Saudi Arabian government over the staging of the new-look Spanish Supercopa, say Marca.

The report claims the competition will be staged in the Middle Eastern state across six seasons with the deal estimated to be at a whopping €30m per campaign.

It stresses that the details remain sketchy and are far from completion, with both the value and length of the deal still at a primitive stage.

Earlier this month, Cadena Cope reported that the trophy – which will increase from two teams to four – will commence in January 2020.

Last season’s one-off match between Barcelona and Sevilla was played in the Moroccan city of Tangier, but the game is usually played over two legs in Spain.

The top two sides in La Liga are set to feature in La Liga alongside the two Copa del Rey finalists, while an overlap in qualification is set to see places downgraded to Copa semi-finalists.
