Serie A & Supercoppa dates set

It has been announced that the Italian Supercoppa fixture between Juventus and Napoli will take place on December 23.

While a venue for the encounter is yet to be confirmed, the usual season curtain raiser has been moved upon request of the Partenopei in order to allow them to concentrate fully on their Champions League qualifying matches.

There is also the possibility that the meeting will take place on foreign soil, during the Serie A season’s winter break.

The match will pit the Old Lady, as defending Serie A champions, against Rafa Benitez's team, who won the Coppa Italia this season.

Juve are the Supercoppa holders, having beaten Lazio in last season’s final.

Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed that the new Serie A season will kick-off on August 31 2014 and end on 31 May 2015.
