And now it’s already official – the latest iteration of the Spanish Super Cup is not going to take place in Spain but rather in Saudi Arabia, as the RFEF have now already confirmed.
Interestingly enough, we already have the semi-finalists for the event: Barcelona will face Atletico Madrid while Real Madrid will lock horns with Valencia.

But even though those match-ups look really interesting and are bound to make for exciting games, football was not really at the centre of many of Barcelona fans’ attention.
They were more concerned about the venue itself and it seems that many of the Cules were definitely not happy with the Super Cup taking place in Saudi Arabia instead of Spain.
Some of them seem to think this is a loss for football and that it’s all about the money nowadays.

Traveling to Saudi Arabia after one game post-break for a Spanish competition? Ridiculous corruption. Absurd.
