The Spanish Supercopa, which matches the winner of La Liga against the winner of the Copa del Rey in a home and home series, is heading to FSC for the first time.

The matchup pits Real Madrid against Valencia on Aug. 17 and 24 at 4 p.m. EDT. The first leg is at Valencia, with the return at the Bernabeu.

This is a nice pickup for FSC, as they really could stand to expand beyond England. The Serie A matches last season were a nice addition, and while France isn’t the best in Europe for club matches, it’s always nice to have more.

Considering the battle between Dish Network and GolTV, which owns the rights to La Liga in the U.S., this provides a nice little bonus for those 13 million households.

Now, if only we could get games in HD…
