The Italian Supercup will be played between Juventus and Napoli on January 20 at Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium and will be renamed the PS5 Supercup.
Along with Sony Interactive Entertainment Italy, Lega Serie A confirmed the event.
Traditionally played on neutral turf, it is a clash between the champions of Serie A and the holders of Coppa Italia.
This is normally at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, but as it will possibly be behind closed doors anyway the venue will be relocated to Reggio Emilia’s Mapei Stadium.
The competition is being funded by PlayStation 5, so it will be called the PS5 Supercup.
“We express great satisfaction for having reached this agreement with Sony Interactive Entertainment Italia,” said Luigi De Siervo, CEO of Lega Serie A, “a brand known all over the world with which we share important values and a vision constantly aimed at the future and the new generations.”
“The agreement with PlayStation 5 confirms the growth of the international image of the Serie A brand. The PS5 Supercup will be a great event capable of creating enthusiasm, emotions and engagement not only during the match but also thanks to the many communication and marketing initiatives that will allow us to involve even the younger generations with ad hoc content.”
