Italian Super Cup returns to Rome
Officials have confirmed the Italian Super Cup between Lazio and Juventus will be played at the Stadio Olimpico on August 18.
The match was originally scheduled to be played in Beijing, but a Serie A Assembly decided to return the match to Rome after Juventus refused to travel to China, while Lazio were not willing to move the match to alternative venues such as Toronto.
Under the ruling of the Assembly, Lazio will receive €1.8 million for participating in the match, while Juventus will pick up the remainder of revenue available. It is understood Juve will launch an appeal against that decision.
