Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Supercoppa Italiana (Italian Super Cup) is a pre-season football competition held the week before the season begins in Italy every year. It is contested by the winners of the Serie A and the Coppa Italia in the previous season, as a curtain raiser to the new season. It is usually played at the home of the Serie A champions. In 1993 and 2003 it was held in the American cities of Washington, D.C. and East Rutherford. The 2002 final was played in the Libyan capital Tripoli. The 2009 final was played in the Bird's Nest of Beijing, China. If the same team wins both Serie A and Coppa Italia, then the Supercoppa is contested by the Serie A winner and the Coppa Italia runner-up. This has happened so far in 1995 (Juventus), 2000 (Lazio), 2006 and 2010 (the last two by Inter). Currently, Milan and Internazionale both hold the record for winning the cup the most times, winning it five times since the competition began in 1988. The 23rd edition, played in August 2010, was won by Internazionale, the Coppa Italia and Serie A winners, who defeated Coppa Italia runners-up Roma 3-1 at San Siro.show more
