Inter’s Supercoppa Italiana clash with Juventus will not be postponed from its planned date of January 12.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, who report that the Lega Serie A will stick to the planned date and that their decision is final.
The Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri had appealed to the league to have the date for the Supercoppa match changed due to fixture congestion, especially after the Italian government officially changed the capacity regulations for stadiums.
The allowed capacity in stadiums for football stadiums was reduced from 75% to 50% heading into January due to a recent spike in COVID infections in the country.
The clubs were hoping that the Lega Serie A would accept their proposal and put the Supercoppa match on hold.
However, the league has instead decided that the match will go ahead as plans, with Inter as Serie A champions and Juventus as Copa Italia champions facing each other at the San Siro.
