The way that the Supercoppa Italiana is contested could be set for a radical change as a big offer has come from Saudi Arabia, a report claims.
The date and location for the next Supercoppa between Milan and Inter has already been announced as the game will take place on 18 January 2023 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The exact kick-off time will be released later and in Italy, while Mediaset will stream the game.
After the past season when the Rossoneri won the league title, the rivalry between the two sides is certainly heated, and it is of course expected that the two Milanese clubs will again fiercely battle for the Scudetto.
According to Milano Finanza (via SempreMilan.it), the Supercoppa could soon change quite significantly. Saudi Arabia have decided to present an offer of €138m to Serie A to keep their agreement on hosting it.
The improvement idea is mainly the result of what should be the new format of the tournament with four teams, along the lines of the one organised in Spain. The top two in Serie A and the two finalists of the Coppa Italia would participate, with other teams to fill in if there is overlap.
They pitch that the agreement would apply for the coming six years, therefore until the 2028-29 season.
