The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) made proposals to eliminate the Brazilian Super Cup. Saudi Arabia and the United States are the two countries interested in hosting the dispute for the next four years, including the 2023 decision between Palmeiras (Brazilian champion) and Flamengo (of the Copa do Brasil).
The revelation came from the entity’s president, Edinaldo Rodríguez, during a CONMEBOL event in Doha. The idea is to wait for the location of the next Club World Cup to be decided to determine the status of the Super Cup.
“Football is a business, we always need to innovate. We have many proposals, including here in the Middle East. We already received calls from the United States and Saudi Arabia, but we will analyze them calmly. It is the best for the clubs”, said a representative of the entity.
The first two editions of the Brazilian Super Cup were held at the Mane Garrincha Stadium in Brasilia. Last year, Atlético MG and Flamengo fought for the championship title at the Arena Pantanal, in Cuiabá. The venue for the 2023 duel, scheduled for January 28, has yet to be decided by the Brazilian Football Confederation.
The president did not reveal the amounts that would include the decision to be made outside of Brazil, but it is believed that it will be much higher than current revenues, which are currently around R$ 7 million.
