China to continue hosting Italian Super Cup

MILAN - The Italian Super Cup will take place in China for the next three seasons after promoters in Beijing agreed to pay $15 million to host the matches.

"A meeting of Serie A has accepted the offer from China to play the next three Super Cups in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou," Italian league president Maurizio Beretta said in a statement on Saturday.

Last August's Super Cup between league champions Inter Milan and Cup winners Lazio was played at Beijing's Bird's Nest stadium.
