Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Sevilla to be played in Morocco

Spanish Super Cup in Tangier

The Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Sevilla will be played as a single match in Morocco – the first time it has been played outside Spain.

The match will kick off at the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangier on Sunday, 12 August at 21:00 BST.

The Super Cup has always been played over two legs – one at each club’s ground – until now.

Barcelona won last season’s domestic double and face Sevilla, who they beat in the Cup final.

Unlike English football’s Community Shield, if a team wins the double in Spain, it meets the beaten cup finalists in the Super Cup, rather than the league runners-up.

This will be Barcelona’s ninth time in the Super Cup in 10 seasons. They lost 5-1 on aggregate to Real Madrid last season.
