The tournament will be played in Saudi Arabia for the third time
Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, will once again host the next edition of the 2023 Spanish Super Cup, which will be held from January 11 to 15, repeating the 'Final Four' format played in the last two seasons.
Barça vs. Real Betis and Real Madrid vs. Valencia will be the semifinals that will be played on January 11 and 12, with the order still to be confirmed. Both these two matches, as well as the final, will be played at the King Fahd stadium in Riyadh, a spectacular venue with a capacity for more than 60,000 spectators.
After the first edition, held in 2020, the competition will be held for the third year in Saudi Arabia. Barça will have the first opportunity to win a trophy this season in the Super Cup, as well as being a great excuse to clear all the ghosts created again in the Champions League. A Barça that for four years has not won the Super Cup title. In fact, since the implementation of the Final Four format, the Catalans have not gone beyond the semifinals.
Madrid, for their part, is the only one that knows what it means to lift the title in Saudi after being crowned against Atlético in 2020 and Athletic Club in 2022 (in 2021 it was played in Spain). Last season, Madrid beat Barça in extra time in the semifinals. A Clásico that this year could only be repeated in the final.
