UEFA Super Cup: All you need to know

The UEFA Super Cup is an annual fixture contested between the winners of the previous season's Champions League and Europa League.

It was previously played between the holders of the Champions League/European Cup and the Cup Winners' Cup, before the UEFA Cup - now Europa League - took that place of the Cup Winners' Cup when it was abolished in 1999.

The first match was played in 1973 and the 2022 edition between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt saw Champions League holders Real win 2-0 to lift the trophy for a record-equalling fifth time.

When is the UEFA Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup is traditionally held in August, although the date depends on the individual season.

The 2023 staging of the competition between Manchester City and Sevilla will be played on Sunday August 16th.

Where is the UEFA Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup was initially played as a two-legged contest, with each side hosting a leg. It changed to the one-off game it is today for the first time when Chelsea beat Real 1-0 at Monaco's Stade Louis II in 1998.

Monaco hosted the match on an annual basis from 1998 until 2013 and since then the game has been held at neutral venues across Europe.

The 2022 edition took place at Helsinki's Olympic Stadium and 2023’s clash moves to the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, Greece. 

Can I watch the UEFA Super Cup?

Yes. The 2023 UEFA Super Cup will be shown live live and UK viewers will be able to tune in to TNT Sport - the new name for BT Sport - for full coverage.

How many times has the UEFA Super Cup taken place?

The 2023 UEFA Super Cup is the 51st staging of the competition, since the annual fixture was first played between Ajax and Rangers, although it wasn't recognised at the time by European football's governing body.

Ajax were the competition's first official winners in 1973, beating AC Milan 6-1 on aggregate over two legs.

The match wasn't held in 1974, 1981 and 1985, so the 2023 match between Man City and Sevilla will be the 48th time it has been played.

Who has won the UEFA Super Cup the most times?

Despite losing the first UEFA Super Cup, AC Milan have won it a joint-record five times, while they have also been runners-up twice.

Barcelona share that benchmark number of successes, as do Real thanks to their victory in Helsinki.

Liverpool are the most successful British team in the competition's history, as they have lifted the trophy on four occasions, most recently in 2019.

In all, the winners of the Champions League/European Cup have won the competition 26 times, with the Cup Winners' Cup holders claiming it on 12 occasions.

The Europa League/UEFA Cup winners have triumphed eight times.
