Venue

The Stade Louis II in Monaco was the venue for the UEFA Super Cup every year since 1998. Built in 1985, the stadium is also the home of AS Monaco, who play in the French league system.

The net capacity of the Stade Louis II was 18,000. Over 70 percent of the tickets were reserved for the general public and supporters of the two clubs. Chelsea and Atlético distributed their tickets directly to their fans. The ticket category available for the general public was Category 1 (Première) opposite the main stand at a price of €70.[7] The international general public ticket sales process began, exclusively via UEFA.com, on 15 June and ended on 2 July.[8]
