Holders Real Madrid will take on Manchester United for the 2017 UEFA Super Cup, the trophy contested each year by the winners of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.
The 2017 showpiece takes place on Tuesday 8 August in Skopje, FYR Macedonia's first European club final. United are the first non-Spanish club since 2013 to qualify.
UEFA Champions League final victors Madrid will be in the UEFA Super Cup for the sixth time. They lost their first two appearances in 1998 and 2000 but beat Feyenoord in 2002, and Sevilla in both 2014 and 2016.
UEFA Europa League winners United have won the UEFA Super Cup just once before, overcoming then European champions Crvena zvezda courtesy of a Brian McClair goal in 1991. The Red Devils lost to Lazio and Zenit respectively in 1999 and 2008. The UEFA Super Cup has run since 1973.
The UEFA Super Cup ticket portal is now closed, with applicants to be notified via email by Friday 14 July. Sales were not conducted on a first-come, first-served basis – so applications made at any time while the portal was open have an equal chance of being successful.
Demand was very high, so a ballot will be conducted to allocate the tickets. Every valid application will be entered into the ballot, irrespective of the time of submission within the application period. No changes can now be made to applications.
Applicants can check the status of applications on the ticket portal, using their dedicated username and password. Payments will be taken automatically for successful applicants, and tickets will be shipped by courier no later than the end of July.
