What is the UEFA Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup is an annual football match contested by the champions of the continent’s two main club competitions – the Champions League and the Europa League.

Usually played in August, the game serves as a sort of curtain-raiser for the upcoming European club season, with the group stages of the aforementioned tournaments primed to kick off in September.

Dutch sports journalist Anton Witkamp came up with the concept in 1971 and it has gone through a number of changes since its inception.

Initially, the competition incorporated two matches – home and away legs – but it has been a single-game decider since 1998, with games taking place at neutral venues.

Where is the UEFA Super Cup 2018 being held?

Estonia will host the 2018 edition of the UEFA Super Cup, marking the first ever time a European club final has been held in the country.

Lillekula Stadium, or A. Le Coq Arena, in the capital city of Tallinn will be the venue for the game.

The ground, which was first opened in 2001 and has a capacity of roughly 15,000, is home to the Estonia national team and Meistriliiga side Flora Tallinn.

From 1998 to 2012 the UEFA Super Cup used to be held at Monaco’s Stade Louis II, but it is now rotated around the continent.

Tallinn is the latest city to play host to the prestigious game, following Prague, Cardiff, Tbilisi, Trondheim and Skopje.
