The Supercoppa Italiana (Italian for Italian Super Cup) is an annual football competition usually held the week before the season begins in Italy. It is contested by the winners of the Serie A and the Coppa Italia in the previous season, as a curtain raiser to the new season. If the same team wins both the Serie A and Coppa Italia titles in the previous season, the Supercoppa is contested by the Serie A winner and the Coppa Italia runner-up, in essence becoming a rematch of the previous year's Coppa Italia final.
Inaugurated in 1988, 18 of the first 21 Supercoppa Italiana contested were played at the home of the Serie A champions, the exceptions being in 1993 and 2003, when it was held in the United States cities of Washington, D.C., and East Rutherford, New Jersey, and in 2002 when the game was played in the Libyan capital Tripoli. Since 2009, the venues chosen have mostly been outside of Italy.
Of the 31 finals played to date, the venues have been as follows:
19 times at the home of the Serie A Champion
4 times in China (3 times in Beijing National Stadium and 1 time in Shanghai Stadium)
twice in the United States
twice in Doha, Qatar
twice at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome acting as a "neutral venue" (where it was not the home ground of the Serie A champion).
once in Tripoli, Libya
once in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Since the game was first established, the Serie A scudetto and Coppa Italia have been won by the same team eight times, thus making the Coppa Italia runner-up the second participant in the Supercoppa the following year. This has occurred eight times: 1995, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 (Juventus), 2000 (Lazio), 2006 and 2010 (Internazionale).
Juventus holds the record for winning the cup a record eight times. The most frequent Supercoppa match-ups have been Juventus against Lazio and Internazionale against Roma, each occurring four times.
On 23 December 2016, Milan became the first Coppa Italia runner-up to win Supercoppa Italiana after defeating Juventus on penalties.
