The Lithuanian Supercup is an annual association football match contested between the champions of the previous A Lyga season and the holders of the Lithuanian Football Cup. It is organised by and named after Lithuanian Football Federation and played at the beginning of the season. For sponsorship reasons, in 2016 it was also known as the LFF Sportland Supercup.[1]

Until 2016, if the Lithuanian championship and the Cup was won by the same team, match was not held and the Supercup was awarded automatically to the winning team. Since 2016 format was changed and double winners then play the league runners-up.

The trophy has been contested since 1995 with 4 interruptions.[2][3]

The current holders are Žalgiris who defeated Trakai in the 2017 match.
