History of the UEFA Super Cup

However, the first Super Cup under UEFA auspices was held in 1974.

The original format of the tournament envisaged home-and-away matches.

The first experience of a one-day match occurred in 1984.

Since 1998, the Super Cup format switched to a one-day match on a permanent basis.

At the end of the 1998-99 season, it was decided to hold the Super Cup match between the winners of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

In 2008, a Russian football club won the Super Cup for the first time. FC Zenit Saint Petersburg defeated England’s Manchester United with a score of 2:1.
