UEFA have confirmed the 2014 Super Cup will take place in Cardiff.

The annual match between winners of the previous season's Champions League and Europa League is moving from its traditional home in Monaco next year.

And Cardiff City's plush new stadium will host the match in two years' time, when it is expected to have been moved to mid-August due to the scrapping of that month's international friendly date.

First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones said: "This is fantastic news and confirms once again how our capital city is in the 'Champions League' itself when it comes to hosting world class sporting events.

"The European Super Cup will be a major boost to not only to the city, but also for the global profile of Wales."

UEFA also announced that the 2015 Super Cup clash will be held at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium in Tbilisi, Georgia.
