The Spanish football federation
(RFEF) has agreed a preliminary deal with Chinese promoter
United Vansen International Sport for the Spanish Super Cup to
take place in Beijing from 2013, the federation said on Friday.
The two-legged, season-opening tie, which pits the La Liga
champions against the King's Cup holders, will be played in the
Bird's Nest stadium in the Chinese capital, the federation said
in a statement on their website.
They did not publish financial details but Spanish media
reported that the deal, which has a seven-year duration and
needs approval by the RFEF general assembly, would net the
federation around 40 million euros.
Spain play China in Seville on Sunday in the world
champions' final warm-up match before they begin the defence of
their European title at Euro 2012 starting on June 10 against
Italy in Gdansk, Poland.
