Polish Super Cup

The Polish Super Cup (Polish: Superpuchar Polski, pronounced [supɛrˈpuxar ˈpɔlskʲi]) is an annually held match between the champions of the Ekstraklasa and the Polish Cup winners or, if the Ekstraklasa champions also win the Polish Cup, the Cup's runners-up. As of 2021, the Polish SuperCup has been played 31 times. The most successful club is Lech Poznań, who won 6 times.[1] The most common participant are Legia Warsaw, as they played fourteen final games and have lost their eight following finals since 2012. Unlike in Polish Cup, there is no extra time played in the competition, therefore in case of a draw after regular time match goes straight into a penalty shoot-out.
