Benfica and Sporting to clash at Algarve stadium

The 2019 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira will be played on 4 August in the Algarve.

Primeira Liga champions Benfica, the winners of the Taça de Portugal, will face arch-rivals Sporting CP.

In the 1943–44 season the Super Cup was created for a special game between Primeira Divisão champions Sporting CP and Taça de Portugal winners Benfica, on the occasion of the inauguration of the Estádio Nacional.

The Super Cup, as we know it today, officially started in 1979 with current hol-ders FC Porto having won it on twenty-one occasions followed by Sporting (8) and Benfica (7).
