La Liga Spanish Football
FC Barcelona v Real Madrid SPANISH SUPERCUP
The Supercopa de España. The Spanish Super Cup is a Spanish football championship contested by the winners of La Liga and the Copa del Rey. It is the Spanish equivalent to the English FA Community Shield, where the winners of the Premier League and FA Cup compete for the trophy.
The current competition has only existed since 1982, but between 1940 and 1953, several other tournaments between the Spanish league champions and the cup winners (then Copa del Generalísimo) were played.
In 1940, it had the name of Copa de Campeones.
It was not played again until 1945, when the Ambassador of Argentina, due to the good relations with the Spanish military government, offered a trophy called Copa de Oro Argentina.
In 1947, the Copa Eva Duarte de Perón was established as an annual tournament, as a tribute to the President of Argentina and his wife, the popular Evita. They were played between September and December, usually as one-match finals.
