The new Spanish Supercopa will see a pair of semi-finals played in January 2020, followed by a final at the King Abdullah Stadium in Saudi Arabia.
The teams picked to play in the mini-tournament were the top four from last season, and Valencia and Barcelona played in May’s Copa del Rey final.
Atlético Madrid will play Barcelona in the first semi-final on Wednesday, Jan. 8. The second semi-final between Real Madrid and Valencia will take place the following day. The final, meanwhile, will be held three days on Sunday, Jan. 12 in Saudi Arabian port city Jeddah.
The rojiblancos have a fixture against Levante the weekend before the trip to the Middle East. They play Eibar at Ipurua on the weekend they return to Spain.

Diego Simeone will not be on the bench for the semi-final — or the final, should Atlético reach it — as he must serve a four-game suspension following his sending off in the 2014 Supercopa, which Atlético won 2-1 on aggregate over Real Madrid.
