Italian Supercup confirmed for January 20

The Italian Supercup will go ahead between Juventus and Napoli at the Mapei Stadium on January 20, confirms Serie A chief Luigi De Siervo.

There had been reports Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis wanted the fixture postponed until May, even though it is the meeting between the 2019-20 Coppa Italia and Scudetto winners.

“It was just a provocation,” assured De Siervo to reporters.

“The fixture list is locked down, these commitments will be respected.”

Juve and Napoli are due to face off on neutral territory at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia, known as the home of Serie A club Sassuolo.

In recent years, it’s a tournament that has been generally played overseas, but with the COVID-19 pandemic still raging and no fans allowed into the stands, it was decided to make it closer to home.
