Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has again warned the Italian Super Cup could be scrapped if they can’t agree on venue and date with Juventus.
The match traditionally kicks off the Italian season and is between the Scudetto winners and holders of the Coppa Italia.
Juve had argued they wanted the game played on Italian soil, but it seems they have now capitulated to Napoli and the FIGC to play in Beijing.
Instead, the battle is now over the date, as Juventus are pushing for August 11, whereas Napoli would prefer August 25.
“We are still trying to decide. It’s not certain that we have to play in China, as more important interests for us and for them could prevail, leading us to scrap this edition,” noted De Laurentiis.
