Rome, June 17 - The traditional curtain-raiser to
the Italian soccer season, the Super Cup between the Serie A
champions and the Italian Cup winners, will be played in Italy
on August 18, the head of the League of top-flight clubs said
Monday.
The venue for the match has been a source of tension
between Serie A champions Juventus and Cup-winners Lazio for
weeks.
Lazio Chairman Claudio Lotito recently threatened to sue
Juve for damages over their refusal to have the match held at
the Beijing National Stadium, where it has been played for three
of the last four years.
Playing the match in China would have been a lucrative move
for the clubs and Lotito says Juve's veto means he has also had
to cancel a money-spinning tour in South America.
"I can say with certainty that the Super Cup will be played
in Italy and it will be played on August 18," League chief
Maurizio Beretta told Sky television.
"The venue has not been established. I hope a solution
that everyone agrees on can be found".
