In a statement released on Thursday, it read: “The 2021 UEFA Super Cup final will be played at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park in Belfast on 11 August.

After recent speculation that the game would be switched to Istanbul, UEFA has today confirmed that the showpiece fixture between Champions League winners, Chelsea, and Europa League winners, Villarreal, will remain in Northern Ireland.

“Irish FA CEO, Patrick Nelson, said: “We have kept in close contact with our partners at UEFA on the matter and following these discussions we are delighted that they have confirmed that the game will stay in Belfast.”
