UEFA has confirmed that the 2021 Super Cup final between Chelsea and Villarreal will be played in Belfast on the 11th of August.

It had been suggested that the game could be switched to Istanbul in compensation for the Champions League final being moved from the Turkish city to Porto due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Turkish sports minister recently claimed that UEFA were considering playing both the 2023 Champions League final and this summer's Super Cup on the shores of the Bosphorus.

However the game between the winners of the Champions League and Europa League will be played at Windsor Park, with Irish FA CEO Patrick Nelson confirming the news.

"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."

Details of the capacity and ticketing for the Super Cup final have yet to finalised.
