The Spanish football federation has reached a deal with Saudi Arabia for the Super Cup to be hosted there for the next three years.

Barca, Real Madrid, Atletico and Valencia play there in January between Jan 8-12.

The clubs will have the same services that are available at top level European tournaments and be hosted well by the country.

Women will be allowed into the stadium in all areas according to a source at the federation.

Women were allowed into the Italian Super Cup final between Juventus and Milan, although they had to sit in a special family section.

The source said: “Access to fans will be open and ormolu without any exceptions for women, who will have the same conditions as in a European stadium.”

Thus it fits the UEFA regulations that president Alexander Ceferin stated in September - clubs from the 55 nations that make up the European football governing body were recommended not to play games in countries where women would have restricted access.
