Saudi Arabia staging revamped 4-team Spanish Super Cup

MADRID (AP) Saudi Arabia will stage the Spanish Super Cup for the first time in January.

The Spanish Football Federation gave Saudi Arabia a three-year deal on Monday.

Spain's move follows Italy, which played its Super Cup in the kingdom last January, despite protests by Italian politicians and human rights activists who cited the assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
