The Asian Super Cup was an annual competition between the winners of the Asian Champions Cup and the Asian Cup Winners Cup.

The competition started in 1995, but came to an end in 2002 after both major AFC tournaments were merged into the Asian Champions League. The most successful clubs in the competition are Al-Hilal from Saudi Arabia and Suwon Samsung Bluewings from South Korea .

Since AFC's current trophies are divided qualitatively by groups of countries, an Asian Super Cup is not likely to be revived until the AFC Cup countries can match the quality of the AFC Champions League countries so both groups of countries can have qualifiers for both competitions.
