Over the past week, it was reported that Saudi Arabia offered Spanish La Liga an offer of around 30 million euros to host the Supercopa de Espana – the Spanish Super Cup – in the country from 2020.

While the Spaniards are looking to discover new markets and gain extra income in their desperate race to overshadow the English Premier League, the Saudis are looking to widen their reach in global football, especially as the 2022 World Cup in Qatar moves closer.

On Monday, the Spanish FA assembly confirmed that from 2020 the Super Cup will include four teams – the league’s champions and second place team, as well as the cup winners and runner-up.

This decision means that the Spanish Super Cup will transform into tournament players over a few days. If this happens then the road to a summer tournament in Jeddah is already being paved.
