The upcoming UEFA Super Cup 2016 will be held on 9 August. The championship is traditionally held late in summer, the curtain of the summer transfer window. So the fans will be able to see firsthand the new composition of the two hegemonic European football teams.
In the Norwegian city of Trondheim, which will host the UEFA Super Cup in 2016, the two teams will fight for a challenge trophy. The format of the match will be no different from other European cup final meetings: two halves of 45 minutes and two additional periods of 15 minutes or penalties if the match participants do not reveal the strongest at the regular time. The meeting of the season will be held in Norwegian stadium "Lerkendal". Starting in 2013, this is the third time that the Super Cup will be held not in the arena "Louis II”, which was the permanent venue of the tournament since 1998.
