Supercoppa Italiana Returns to San Siro After a Decade

The date for the 34th Supercoppa Italiana has been set, along with the venue. After much suspense, it has been revealed that the magnificent San Siro will host Inter and Juventus on the 12th of January.

Saudi Arabia was expected to host the finals for the third time in the last four years, with Jeddah and Riyadh having conducted the tournament in 2018 and 2019 respectively. Lega Serie A were in terms to play out at least one more edition in the country but due to a mismatch of dates, it has been moved back to Italy.

Inter cruised to an inspiring Scudetto win in 2020/21, whereas Juventus captured the Coppa Italia that season.

The one-off was touted to take place before the start of the current Serie A season but the presence of the EURO 2020 tournament meant it could only be postponed further.

The 2020 version of the Supercoppa Italiana was held at Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium, leaving fans perplexed as to why it is not being held at a neutral venue instead.  The last time it was held in San Siro was in 2010, when Inter met Roma – the same season they claimed the treble under Jose Mourinho.
