With four participating teams, tickets to the revamped tournament have mostly been purchased by Saudi nationals, according to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

Of the 12,000 tickets made available to fans of the clubs, Real Madrid sold the most.

When the revamped Spanish Super Cup begins this week in Saudi Arabia, the spectators will mostly consist of Saudi nationals, according to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, as the four participating clubs have failed to attract much interest from their own fans. 

Of the 12,000 tickets made available for the tournament, just nine per cent have been sold. Real Madrid sold 700, Barcelona 300, Atletico Madrid 50 and Valencia 26.
