RIYADH: Saudi Arabia will host the Italian Super Cup - known as the Supercoppa Italiana - between AC Milan and Juventus early next year, the General Sports Authority said on Wednesday.
"The Kingdom will witness early next year the final of the 2019 Italian Super Cup, which will bring together Juventus and AC Milan," it said in a statement on Twitter.
The authority also posted pictures and video clips of the Saudi sports authority chief Turki Al-Sheikh and Marco Brunelli, head of the Italian professional football league, signing an agreement.
Juventus last month crushed AC Milan 4-0 at the Olympic Stadium in Rome to win a fourth consecutive Coppa Italia. It was their 13th Coppa win.
It was revealed on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia will host three of the next five Italian Super Cups.
