UEFA set to replace the Super Cup with a four-team competition – Report


The Super Cup may be updated, according to UEFA, the governing body of football in Europe.

The organization is reportedly considering proposals to replace the Super cup with a new four-team event in an effort to boost revenue, as per the Mail and Diario AS.

Four teams would compete in the competition, which would follow a structure identical to the current Spanish Supercup. The Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League, and Major League Soccer champions would be among the invited teams.
