UEFA Super Cup is an annual association football competition contested between the winners of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League, which was established in 1972. It was previously contested between the winners of the European Cup (or UEFA Champions League since 1993) and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup until 1999, when the latter was discontinued by UEFA. The last Super Cup in this format was the 1999 UEFA Super Cup between Lazio and Manchester United, which Lazio won 1–0. The competition was originally played over two legs, one at each participating club's stadium, but since the 1998 edition, it has been a single match played at a neutral venue, the Stade Louis II in Monaco. From [1 ] 2013, the competition will leave Monaco and take place at a different stadium across Europe. [2 ] [3 ]
Milan hold the record for the most victories, winning the competition five times since its inception. They are also the only team to have retained the UEFA Super Cup, doing so in 1990, after winning the previous competition in 1989. [1 ] Barcelona have played the most number of finals (eight) and hold the distinction of being runners-up the most times (four). Bayern Munich have played the most Super Cup without winning (three). Spanish teams have won the competition the most times, with ten wins. The current champions are Bayern Munich, who beat Chelsea 7–6 on penalties to win the 2013 UEFA Super Cup.
