Planning a Football Trip for 2019? This post has details of Super Cups in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy to help plan your Football Trips.
Super Cups were great opportunities to plan a Football Trip in the Summer, usually the dates, venue and kick off time are announced well in advance to enable you to plan ahead and get good deals on flights and hotels. You also get a great game with two top teams in one of the major national stadiums. In recent years however it has become fashionable for the game to be played outside the country and in the case of Spain at a different time of year as the league’s seek to enhance their global following.
The 2019 Supercopa de España will be the 36th edition of the Supercopa de España, an annual football competition.
In February 2019, it was announced that competition format would be changed from a two-team format, to a four-team format which would include a semi-final round
The tournament will feature both finalists from the 2018–19 Copa del Rey and the remaining highest ranked teams from the 2018–19 La Liga that had not already qualified through the cup final.
La Liga have announced the tournament will take place outside Spain from 8th to 12th January. More details to follow when announced
- Real Madrid
- Atletico Madrid
The Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira is an annual Portuguese football match played since 1979 between the winners of the previous season’s league (Primeira Liga) and cup (Taça de Portugal) competitions. In the case that one team has won both competitions (i.e. the double, Portuguese: dobradinha), then it will play again against the runners-up of the Taça de Portugal.
The 2019 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira will be the 41st edition of the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira. It will be played between the champions of the 2018–19 Primeira Liga, Benfica, and the winners of the 2018–19 Taça de Portugal, crosstown rivals Sporting CP, on 4 August 2019.
The game will be played at the Estadio Algarve located between Faro and Loulé, in Portugal.
The Estádio Algarve stadium also hosts concerts, music festivals and the occasional international friendly soccer competition but has remained something of a white elephant as neither local club have enjoyed enough domestic success to attract sufficient supporters to make the stadium a viable, commercial success. In fact, both teams usually play their games in smaller stadiums.
Estádio Algarve is located 8 km north-west of Faro on the A22 highway to Loulé. The stadium has its own station, Parque das Cidades, with trains to Faro (the next stop), Loulé (two stops), Portimao and Lagos. From the station the stadium is a 15-minute walk.
The 2019 Trophée des Champions (transl. 2019 Champions Trophy) will be the 24th edition of the French super cup. The match will be contested by the winners of the 2018–19 Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain and Coupe de France champions, Rennes. The match will be played at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen, China. The stadium has a capacity of 60,334 spectators.
Paris Saint-Germain are the six-time defending champions, having beat Monaco in the 2018 edition.
Shenzhen is a major city in Guangdong Province, China. It forms part of the Pearl River Deltamegalopolis. The city is located immediately north of Hong Kong.
The 2019 Supercoppa Italiana will be the 32nd edition of the Supercoppa Italiana, the Italian football super cup. It will be played in the 2019–20 season by Juventus, the winners of the 2018–19 Serie A championship, and Lazio, the winners of the 2018–19 Coppa Italia.
It’s played around the world in recent years and this years is in Saudi Arabia so not a great option for a football trip. Last years was played in January and whilst the dates for this years have not been announced I expect it to be similar.
