The 2020 UEFA Super Cup will be the 45th edition of the UEFA Super Cup, an annual football match organised by UEFA and contested by the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. The match will feature the winners of the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League and the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League. It will be played at the Estádio do Dragão in Porto, Portugal in August 2020.[1]

Venue[edit]

This is the first UEFA club competition final hosted at the stadium, which was one of the venues of UEFA Euro 2004 and was one venue of 2019 UEFA Nations League Finals.[2]

Host selection[edit]
