Um, yay?

Representatives from Saudi Arabia General Sports Authority, along with brass from Serie A, Juventus & AC Milan announced today that the Supercoppa will be hosted in Saudi Arabia for the next three years, including next year’s clash between Milan and Juventus.

It’s reported that the deal will be worth €7 million, with both Milan and Juventus getting 45% of the money and Serie A getting 10%.

So, free money to play a glorified friendly in Saudi Arabia? Sold.
