MILAN (AP) Saudi Arabia will host three of the next five Italian Super Cups.

The Italian league told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the first match of the series will be held in January, between Serie A champion Juventus and Italian Cup finalist AC Milan.

Details were to be formally announced shortly.

The match usually features the Serie A champion against the Italian Cup winner, although since Juventus won both competitions last season, the other spot is being taken by the Cup runner-up.

The game has been contested 11 times abroad before, most recently in Qatar in 2016, when Milan beat Juventus in a penalty shootout.
