The Iranian Super Cup (Persian: سوپر جام ایران) is an Iranian association football trophy awarded to the winner of a match between the Persian Gulf Pro League's season champion and the winner of the Hazfi Cup. It is similar to numerous other Super Cup tournaments held in other countries.

The tournament was only held once in 2005 when Hazfi Cup champions Saba Battery defeated league champions Foolad 4–0.

The next edition of the Iranian Super Cup was planned to be played on 10 August 2007 between the 2006–07 league champions Saipa and the Hazfi Cup winners Sepahan but the match was cancelled. After Mehdi Taj was elected as Federation president in 2016, the Iranian Super Cup was restarted. Zob Ahan won the first Super Cup after its restart, beating 2015–16 Persian Gulf Pro League winners Esteghlal Khuzestan 4–2 after extra time.

Participating clubs[edit]

In the normal circumstances, following clubs participate:

  • Defending Persian Gulf Pro League Champions
  • Defending Hazfi Cup winners

However, if one club wins both the Persian Gulf Pro League and Hazfi Cup, the Hazfi Cup's runners-up will participate.
