The Real Spanish Federation of Football decided to renew completely the Supercopa of Spain the past season. At the end, it decided that the tournament would leave to be thing of two and that would not play more in Spain as always. The format became a 'Final Four' between four clubs, with two semifinals and a big final. The past course decided that the headquarters was Saudi Arabia, something that caused a lot stir.
This campaign, the tournament will go back to be in Arabia, and the same that the past campaign, also will be in January. So that it was not a competition of pre-season, the RFEF decided to put him shortly after Kings, something that will repeat in this occasion. Nevertheless, up to now there is not official confirmation of when will be exactly the Supercopa, since with the coronavirus the calendar has remained very busy and it was necessary to think it calmly.
At the end, as they have affirmed in the newspaper 'ACE', the days that has chosen the Federation are the 13, the 14 and on 16 January of the next 2021.

The group barcelonista, the same that does a year, will go back to be one of the participants, and on the contrary that then this time will try to reach the final and win it.
The Barça was deleted in semifinals in this January of 2020 after falling against the Athletic of Madrid, that finished losing in the final in front of the Real Madrid, that heaved champion. In this occasion, the rojiblancos will not be in Arabia, but yes the merengues like champions of League. The blaugrana will be for having remained second, since the regulation of this competition dictamina that the second classified in League also has to attend.
On the other hand, Real Sociedad and Athletic Club of Bilbao also will contest the Supercopa for having been the finalists of the Glass of Rey. Having this in account, there are possibilities that there is Classical and derbi in the 'semis' if they remain matched culés and madridistas on the one hand, and donostiarras and bilbaínos by the another. Nevertheless, obviously the draw could offer an Athletic-Barça or a Barcelona-Real Sociedad.
It could be the first title of Koeman with the Barça
This tournament will be the first title at stake of this campaign, by what will be a big opportunity for the group barcelonista. Ronald Koeman could raise his first glass like trainer of the Barcelona, something that could give a lot of morals for LaLiga, the Champions and the Glass of Rey. The Supercopa could be more important of what seems and therefore the Catalans will try to give it everything to carry it.
