Sports authority sets up Italian-themed village for AC Milan and Juventus fans attending Supercoppa Italiana

JEDDAH: The Saudi General Sports Authority (GSA) has set up an Italian-themed village for AC Milan and Juventus fans attending the Italian Super Cup match on Wednesday at King Abdullah Sports City stadium.

The village emulates ancient Italian cities, as well as cultural and historical elements of Italy and Saudi Arabia. 

Fans will also be served dishes from the cuisines of both countries and enjoy Italian music.

The village will host a variety of activities, including two theatrical performances. The first will commence at 6 p.m. and the second at 8 p.m.

The Italian village is located in front of gate 6. Events will take place between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Juventus stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo, landed in Jeddah on Monday, while AC Milan team members arrived on Sunday morning. 

The Italian stars received a warm welcome by their fans in the Kingdom. 

The GSA announced on Twitter that cameras are not allowed during the Super Cup final.

Both AC Milan and Juventus have won the Super Cup title seven times since the annual football competition was launched in 1988.

Saudi Arabia will become the fifth foreign nation to host the Super Cup after the US, China, Libya and Qatar.

An agreement to host the match was signed in June by Turki Al-Sheikh, the GSA’s then-chairman, and Marco Brunelli, executive director of the Italian Professional Football League.
