Super Cup in China or Dubai?

Juventus and Lazio are still debating where and when to hold the Italian Super Cup, as Beijing and the United Arab Emirates are options.

The trophy traditionally opens the Italian season in August and is between the Scudetto winners and Coppa Italia holders.

On Monday there will be a new meeting to discuss organising this match, which was initially set to be on August 10 in Beijing.

However, there are now reports the United Arab Emirates could be prepared to host the game in December.

Juve are inclined to push for an Italian venue, as they already have friendly tours of the USA and Canada planned.

Lazio are determined to play in China, as it would be a big publicity and marketing opportunity as well as bringing in fresh funds from sponsors.

In recent years the Italian Super Cup has often been played in Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Stadium, while other venues included New York and Tripoli.
