The competition that faces the La Liga champion with the Copa del Rey champion will be played once again outside of Spain.
The Spanish Super Cup will continue to change as announced by the Spanish Football Federation today in the European nation.
Last year the Super Cup was played for the first time using a single match format, and it was also the first time to be played outside Spain as it was played in Tanger, Morocco.
But today the cup has received another modification, as it will be played for the first time in history between four teams, in a Final Four format.
The two finalists of the Copa del Rey and the two top teams in the Spanish La Liga will play a small tournament outside of Spain to decide who is the biggest champion in the nation.
The announcement was made by Spanish FA’s president Luis Rubiales.
The tournament will be played between four or five days and will be a four-game celebration, with the winners of La Liga playing against the Copa del Rey runner-ups and vice-versa.
The first edition in this new format will be played at the end of this season for the first time if the federation’s assembly agrees.
According to Rubiales, the new format “does not break any rules and objectives of the competition.”
“Neutral tournaments in the summer are not well supported for the clubs. We see this as a unique opportunity for the “Marca España” to grow without going against the principles of the sport.”
Rubiales was one of the worst critics after La Liga decide to take one official game each year out of Spain, something that the Spanish Football Federation did not like.
