    More importantly Windsor Park is hosting the Supercup for some unknown reason.

    They usually have that in smaller stadiums, the Cardiff City Stadium had it in 2014 and in 2018 it was held in a 12000 seater in Talinn.

    Not so much questioning the stadium, but more why would anyone want to come here?

    I don't think 10 years between finals is too bad to be honest. It's obvious why it's liked. It's a a stadium that was absolutely built for commercial and corporate revenue and located in a wealthy city where they can easily shift top price tickets. I'd hazard a guess that it's their most lucrative stadium in their finals rotation.

    Next year the final is in Istanbul - sure you fans would love another visit!

    Year after that is Saint Petersburg so another long trip.
