Croatian Supercup

The Croatian Supercup (Croatian: Hrvatski nogometni superkup) is a football match between the winners of the Croatian First League and the Croatian Cup. The Supercup is always held at the beginning of a new football season, and is only held when different clubs win the two most important competitions in the previous season (i.e. the match is not played when a club completes The Double).

Since the establishment of Croatian football competitions in 1992, the two local powerhouses Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split won domestic doubles on nine occasions (Dinamo Zagreb 8 and Hajduk Split 1), the Supercup wasn't held in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012. In addition, the Supercup was not played on three more occasions for various reasons - in 1999 Dinamo refused to play Osijek saying the fixture did not fit into their schedule and in 2000 and 2001 Hajduk and Dinamo could not agree upon the rules and whether it should be played as a single match or over two legs, and in what order.

In 2002 the Croatian Football Federation took over the organisation of the Supercup and made it an official single-legged fixture, with 30 minutes of extra time followed by a penalty shoot-out if necessary, which must be played a week before the following football season kicks off.[1]

Since 2002, the match has always been hosted by the club that won the league title, with the exception of 2002 when NK Zagreb were reigning champions, but chose to "host" the match at crosstown rivals' Dinamo's Maksimir Stadium saying that playing at Maksimir would help them prepare for their upcoming UEFA Champions League qualifying fixture, as their home stadium at Kranjčevićeva had been declared unfit for UEFA competitions and were forced to host their European ties at Maksimir.[1]

Winners[edit]

Hajduk Split and Dinamo Zagreb are the only two clubs who won the Supercup, both with 5 wins. Six out of ten Supercups held were decided in Eternal derbies featuring both clubs.

Results by team[edit]

Only five clubs participated in the Supercup since 1992. Osijek also qualified for the Supercup by winning the 1999 Croatian Cup, but the match wasn't held as clubs couldn't agree on the date of the fixture.[1]
