Svenska Supercupen, Swedish Super Cup, is a one-off fixture in Swedish football played between the Allsvenskan champions and the winners of Svenska Cupen. The fixture is played before the start of the Allsvenskan season. In the event of a club winning the Double (as AIK did in 2009 and Helsingborg in 2011) the runner up of the Allsvenskan takes part. Founded in 2007 the first three editions of the competition were won by the winners of the Allsvenskan, the fourth edition was won by the Double winners. The most recent fifth edition was won by the Svenska Cupen champions. A separate Supercupen exists for women's association football.

Since Football is played in Sweden from April to October the cup is played before the start of the season in March. The combination of cold weather and high ticket prices has had a negative effect on attendance. Even though the match is played at the home stadium of the Allsvenskan champion, attendance has hovered around 2000 although 10,362 attended the 2011 edition which was more than the cumulative attendance until that year. It remains to be seen if this was a result of the fixture being a Skåne derby or an increase in interest in the fixture. Svenska Cupen has experienced similar problems with attendance.

The 2013 match was played on 10 November at Swedbank Stadion, Malmö where league winners Malmö FF defeated cup winners IFK Göteborg 3-2. The 2014 edition will be held between the 2014 Allsvenskan champions and 2013–14 Svenska Cupen winners in November 2014.
