The Spanish Super Cup or Supercopa de España is about to take place and if you’re looking for a way to watch it then I’ve got the details you need. In this guide I’ll show you how you can watch anywhere in the world.
The Spanish Super Cup sees the two champions of Spain, both winners of La Liga and the Copa Del Rey go head to head to find out who is the ultimate champion of Spain.
This year Barcelona face Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup which promises to be an exciting match.
If you’re outside Spain you could have limited access to watching this match and if you’re either a Barcelona or Sevilla fan or you just love Spanish football then you’ll want to make sure you’re watching live.
Below I’m going to show you how you can watch the entire match for free online from the UK or any other country in the world using an app called a VPN.
Where can I watch the Spanish Super Cup
The Spanish Super Cup (Supercopa de España) is often shown on expensive cable subscription networks which you probably don’t have access to.
In some countries it’s not even being shown so there is no way you can even watch.
In Russia however the match is being shown completely for free by the network MatchTV! They’re also streaming it live online on their online TV service.
MatchTV! is a completely free service in Russia but if you’re outside Russia you’ll be blocked.
To watch for free on MatchTV! in another country you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app.
A VPN app from a provider such as ExpressVPN is a completely legal app that lets you disguise your location. You can make it appear like you’re in Russia which unblocks MatchTV! allowing you to watch the entire Spanish Super Cup (Supercopa de España) online for free.

How to watch the Spanish Super Cup

I recommend using ExpressVPN as they’ve got a handy 30-day money back guarantee, if you can’t get it working then you can get your money back. They also have 3-months free on their annual package so if you want to watch other football like the Premier League you can save up to 49%.
Once you’ve picked one, follow the instructions below, I’m using ExpressVPN as my example:
- Visit the Express website and choose a subscription length to sign up for their service.
- Go to the ‘Products’ area of their website and download the correct app for your device. Or visit your regular app store and search ‘ExpressVPN’ to install that way.
- Open the app and login or activate it.
- Press Choose Location (1).
- Type ‘Russia’ into the search box (2) and then click Russia (3).
- Press Connect (4) or wait if it’s automatically connecting.

When is the Spanish Super Cup taking place
The Spanish Super Cup also known as the Supercopa de España is taking place on Sunday, 12th August 2018.
Kick-off is expected to take place at 9 pm UK Time which is 10 pm in Spain. You can use a website such as TheTimeZoneConverter to work out the time in your country.
This year La Liga winners Barcelona who hold the most successful record in the Spanish Super Cup take on Sevilla who came runner’s up in last season’s Copa Del Rey.
Barcelona won not only La Liga but also beat Sevilla in the Copa Del Rey. Meaning there was no alternative but for second placed Sevilla to be the team to face Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.
The Spanish Super Cup is usually played over two legs, one at each team’s home stadium. For the first time ever the final will be played over just one leg and this year in Morocco.
Barcelona are firm favourites to win this year’s Super Cup after beating Sevilla 5-0 already in the Copa Del Rey. However, after featuring in the Spanish Super Cup the last three years and only winning once (against Sevilla no less) it could be that the Super Cup proves something of an upset for Barcelona.
Whatever the outcome it’s a chance to see Barca in action and if you’re a Sevilla fan you’ll just hope they’ve got enough in them to repay Barca for the Copa Del Rey defeat.
Conclusion: How to watch the Spanish Super Cup 2018
