Bird's Nest to host Italian Super Cup

THE Italian Super Cup will be played at Beijing's Bird's Nest stadium on August 8, the Italian League said yesterday.

Officials had already announced the match between Serie A champion Inter Milan and Italian Cup winner Lazio would be held in Beijing but it has now been decided to use the Olympic Stadium after weeks of uncertainty. The pre-season curtain raiser will kick off at 8pm beijing time, eight minutes short of a year since the Olympic Opening Ceremony started in the distinctive stadium. Italian soccer chiefs are playing the game abroad to increase global interest in Serie A.
