Real Madrid to play the UEFA Super Cup in the black kit

05 Aug 2017

Real Madrid will contest the European Super Cup against Manchester United in Skopje, Macedonia on Tuesday 8 August. The club has announced that the team will not be wearing the classic all-white kit against United, instead, the players will wear the third kit – the all-black strip. Real Madrid may have to wear white socks as not to clash with United’s home kit, to comply with UEFA’s regulations.

It won’t be the first time Real Madrid have worn their black kit in a final. The team sported their dark strip when they won the 2000 Champions League against Valencia in Paris.

Tuesday’s final will be the first UEFA final to be played in Skopje as Real Madrid aim to become the first team to win back-to-back trophies since AC Milan managed the feat in 1989-90. Madrid have won the Super Cup three times while United have lifted the trophy just once – in 1991, when the format changed to a single, one-off match.
