The Supercopa do Brasil was a Brazilian association football trophy organized by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). It was contested between the champions of the Campeonato Brasileiro and the winners of the Copa do Brasil, similarly to the English FA Community Shield and other domestic competitions across the world.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) announced in 2013 a new edition of the competition was to be played in 2015.[1]

Unofficial competitions[edit]

An unofficial competition was played in 1992, between the champions of the Série A and of the Série B, as both championships were played in the first six months of the year. The game was played on August 12 between Flamengo (champion of the Série A) and Paraná (champion of the Série B). The game ended in a 2-2 draw, and in the penalty shootout, Flamengo beat the opponent 4-3. While RSSSF[3] regards the competition as some form of Supercopa do Brasil, in Brazil the competition was popularly known as Taça Brahma dos Campeões. Differently from the 1990 and 1991 editions, which were official CBF competitions,[4][5] the 1992 edition[6] was a friendly cup.[7]
