This year, the audience will not see the match for the Super Bowl
Due to the full-scale invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, for the first time the trophy will not be played.
This year there will be no match for the Super Cup of Ukraine. This publication reports FanDay.net. The leadership of Ukrainian football made such a decision because of the full-scale military invasion of Russian troops into our country.
Recall that the championship and Cup of Ukraine of the 2021/22 season were not completed and did not determine their winners. In addition, at the moment the match cannot be organized in Odessa, the traditional venue for the match.
It should be noted that this is the first case in the 18-year history when the Super Cup of Ukraine may not be played. The current owner of the trophy remains Shakhtar, who won it last September in a match with the Ukrainian champions of the 2020/2021 season Dynamo. Over the years, only two clubs have become its owners – Dynamo and Shakhtar. Both teams have nine wins.
