The Supercopa of Spain, to fault of official confirmation, already would have headquarters for this season, as they aim several sportive means Spaniards. The Real Spanish Federation of Football will confirm today Monday that the tournament will play in Saudi Arabia this next month of January.

Qatar seems that it was the another country that aspired to do with the rights of organisation of the competition, but finally has been Arabia, after the intervention of Kosmos International, the company of Gerard Hammered, the one who has carried the cat to the water. The Saudi country will pay to the RFEF some 30 million euros to receive to Real Madrid, FC Barcelona​, Valencia and Athletic of Madrid, the four teams that will play the tournament.

It seems that 15 of these 30 'kilos' will remain them to him the RFEF, whereas the others 15 will be for the four groups that participate in the Supercopa. Each one will carry to his house of 2 to 4 million alone euros for participating and also will win a plus in prizes, as it is used to to be usual in these cases. This plus will be of two million euros for the winner and 1,4 for the runner-up. The semifinalists will carry 800.000 euros.

One of the big peros that could have the election of the headquarters was the rejection of International Amnesty to that played in a country in which the women did not have all the rights guaranteeed. Luckily, it seems that from the Federation affirm that all the women will be able to see the Supercopa from the stadium. Spain would have negotiated with Arabia that respected all the feminine fundamental rights and all would have remained clear.

Pure draw and final on 12 January

Also it is necessary to signal that the draw between the four clubs that participate in the tournament will be pure and will celebrate , as we have said, this Monday 11 November to the 16.00 hours (Spanish peninsular hour). The two semifinals will play the 8 and on 9 January 2020, whereas the 12 will be the final. This course the format has changed and will be to the purest style basketball, with a 'Final Four'.

Finally, remember that the Barça and Valencia participate like champions of LaLiga and the Glass of Rey, respectively, whereas the Real Madrid and the Athletic only do it for having remained third and second in the competition of the regularity. This format demanded that these two groups had options to win the Supercopa without having done at all for this, and this pure draw could offer any clash in semifinals.
