Stadion Eden in Prague will host the UEFA Super Cup game. At a launch of the event, FAČR President Miroslav Pelta expressed his association’s pride at being selected to host the big game:
We are very proud to be the first country where the final will be held after moving from Monaco. We are ready to make all necessary efforts to make it an unforgettable evening.
Prague will be just the second UEFA Super Cup venue since the competition became a one-off final in 1998 and moved to Monaco, its base for 15 seasons.
FAČR coordinating manager Ivo Sekerka spoke in depth about the preparations undertaken at Stadion Eden, which have included laying a new pitch, enhancing the floodlighting and enlarging the media facilities at a ground opened in May 2008. He also discussed the fan zones and signage systems that will be in operation in the city as well as the UEFA Super Cup charity ticket auction launched last week by UEFA.
