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 on 12 August 2020.
Completed in 2003, the ‘Dragon Stadium’ is the home of FC Porto. The first UEFA competition matches at the ground were in the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League knockout phase, José Mourinho’s team making it through to the final that season and beating Monaco 3-0 in Gelsenkirchen.
The Estádio do Dragão then held the opening game of UEFA EURO 2004 – Portugal’s 2-1 defeat by Greece – and has since seen regular UEFA competition action involving both Porto and Portugal. Part of a major leisure development in Porto, the stadium has also been the venue for live performances by the Rolling Stones, Coldplay and One Direction.
This will be the first UEFA final in Portugal since Lisbon’s Estádio José Alvalade staged the 2005 UEFA Cup final; home club Sporting CP actually lost that decider 3-1 against CSKA Moskva. More recently, Lisbon’s Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica was the setting for the 2014 UEFA Champions League final in which Real Madrid overcame city rivals Atlético 4-1 after extra time.
