According to Milan&Finanza, Serie A have received a €138m offer from Saudi Arabia to hold the Supercup in Riyad for the next six years and with a new format.
The upcoming Supercoppa clash between Serie A champions Milan and Coppa Italia winners Inter will take place in Saudi Arabia in January. It’s the first time in the post-pandemic era that the match is played abroad.
According to Milano&Finanza, there could be more editions played in the country as Serie A have received a €138m bid to hold the Supercoppa’s Final Four in Riyad in the next six years. That would mean €23m net per season, plus travel and accommodations paid by the host country.
It’s three times more than what Serie A get with the current agreement worth €8m for one match.
The format would change, involging the Serie A champions and runners-up from the previous campaign and the Coppa Italia Finalists which would meet in one-legged semis and Final.
According to the report, the Supercoppa winners would then face the Saudi Super Cup champions.
