Where will the UEFA Super Cup be played?

The 2024 UEFA Super Cup will be held at the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland.

The stadium was originally built for UEFA EURO 2012, during which it hosted all three of Poland's group games as well as a quarter-final and semi-final. It has since staged the UEFA Europa League final, in 2015, and is the regular home of the Poland men's national team.

This venue will be the 12th to stage the UEFA Super Cup since the fixture switched from its long-term home of Monaco, after Prague (2013), Cardiff (2014), Tbilisi (2015), Trondheim (2016), Skopje (2017), Tallinn (2018), Istanbul (2019), Budapest (2020), Belfast (2021), Helsinki (2022) and Piraeus (2023).

Manchester City won the 2023 UEFA Super Cup, beating Sevilla on penalties following a 1-1 draw at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, Greece.

What is the UEFA Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup is an annual fixture contested by the reigning champions of the Champions League and the Europa League, devised by Dutch reporter Anton Witkamp to decide definitively the top club side in Europe.

The European Cup/Champions League holders have always been involved, facing the holders of either the European/UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1973–99) or the UEFA Cup/Europa League (2000–).

What does the UEFA Super Cup trophy look like?

The UEFA Super Cup trophy stands at 58cm tall and weighs in at 12.2kg.

The current model has been in use since 2006 but retains the basic design of its predecessor, which was conceived and crafted at the Bertoni workshop in Milan. The classic bowl is held aloft on a base that is subtly twisted like a skein of wool as two arms allow the winners enough room to take a firm grip as they do their lap of honour.

The winners are entitled to have a replica made, provided it does not exceed four-fifths of the dimensions of the original.

What else do you need to know?

If the scores are level after normal time the match will go straight to a penalty shoot-out. No extra time will be played.
