Svenska Supercupen 2014, Swedish Super Cup 2014, was the 8th Svenska Supercupen, an annual football match contested by the winners of the previous season's Allsvenskan and Svenska Cupen competitions. The match was played at Malmö Stadion, Malmö, on 9 November 2014, and was played by the 2014 Allsvenskan champions Malmö FF and the 2013–14 Svenska Cupen champions IF Elfsborg. The match was IF Elfsborg's second in the competition and their first since 2007. It was Malmö FF's second successive appearance and third in total, it was also the first time that the competition was hosted at Malmö Stadion and the first time the competition was hosted at an alternative home venue.

In Sweden the match was broadcast live on TV12.[3] Martin Strömbergsson from Gävle was the referee for match, his first time officiating the competition. His older brother Markus had previously officiated three Svenska Supercupen matches. Malmö FF won the match on penalties 5–4 after the match had ended 2–2 after extra time. IF Elfsborg took the lead through Viktor Claesson in the first half, Malmö FF equalized Elfsborg's lead in the 89th minute of ordinary time. Malmö FF then took the lead through Emil Forsberg in the second half of extra time, only to have their lead equalized by Viktor Prodell on a penalty in the last minute of extra time. The match proceeded to penalties which Malmö FF won 5–4 after Elfsborg had missed their last two penalties. This was the first time Svenska Supercupen went to extra time and penalties in its eight-year history.

Background[edit]

Elfsborg had one previous appearance in the competition, the inaugural edition of 2007 when they won the title after beating Helsingborgs IF 1–0 at Borås Arena. Malmö FF qualified for the competition of 5 October 2014 when they secured the 2014 Allsvenskan title in the 27th league round in the away fixture against AIK at Friends Arena with a 3–2 win.

Malmö FF chose to play the match at the clubs alternative home venue Malmö Stadion.
