History of the UEFA Super Cup

The foundation of the Super Cup dates back to 1972. The same year the first match took place. AFC Ajax was the first team to win the Super Cup. Back then, the Dutch players were regarded as one of the strongest teams.

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.
