Italian Super Cup move rejected

Despite calls to move the Italian Super Cup Milan-Inter match to San Siro, it looks as if it will be hosted in Beijing.

The game kicks off the Italian football season on August 6 and is between Scudetto winners Milan and Coppa Italia holders Inter.

Considering this is a local derby and the Copa America will make many of their stars already face international travel, the two clubs had requested a move to San Siro.

“There are a series of mechanisms we need to look over, but I believe we are going towards confirmation of the date and venue in Beijing,” said Lega Serie A President Maurizio Beretta today.

The Super Cup should be played at the Birds' Nest Stadium.
