Serie A issue Super Cup statement amid confusion
Serie A have issued a statement confirming that there has been no date change for the Italian Super Cup game between Inter Milan and Juventus.
Both clubs have asked for the match to be postponed, after the Italian government reduced stadium capacity to 50% due to covid-19.
The change means they stand to lose a lot of money in revenue, and both clubs have already sold tickets to the game to their fans.
Rumors circulated prompting Serie A to postpone the game, but they released a statement confirming that the date is still valid for the time being.
“Following rumors that have emerged in recent hours, the Lega Serie A confirms that the Supercoppa Frecciarossa remains scheduled for January 12, 2022, unless further decisions are taken by the Lega.” The statement reads via Italy football.
Juve FC says
This statement barely clarifies the situation for the clubs concerned given the changes in ticket sales and the financial difficulties they face.
However, this game has taken too long and we just have to play it and get through the rest of this season.
The game offers Max Allegri the chance to lift his first trophy on his return to the dugout as manager of Juve.
