What is the UEFA Super Cup?

An annual fixture contested by the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions, devised by Dutch reporter Anton Witkamp to decide definitively the top club side in Europe. The European Cup/UEFA Champions League holders have always been involved, facing the holders of either the European/UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup (1973–99) or the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League (2000–).

Do this year’s teams have UEFA Super Cup pedigree?

This will be Chelsea’s fifth UEFA Super Cup appearance, a tally bettered by five teams: Barcelona (9), AC Milan (7), Real Madrid (7), Liverpool (6) and Sevilla (6). The Blues have a mixed record, though:

1998: W1-0 vs Real Madrid (Monaco)
2012: L1-4 vs Atlético (Monaco)
2013: L2-2, 4-5pens vs Bayern (Prague)
2019: L2-2, 4-5pens vs Liverpool (Istanbul)
By contrast, it will be Villarreal’s first UEFA Super Cup outing; the UEFA Europa League title was, in fact, only their second ever trophy – their first was winning the Spanish third tier in 1970 (though they were among the three clubs that won through the UEFA Intertoto Cup in both 2003 and 2004).

Where next for the Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup will visit the Finnish capital Helsinki in 2022 before moving to Kazan, Russia in 2023.
