Sevilla to sport special five-time winners' patch in Super Cup

Sevilla are to take to the field in Tuesday's European Super Cup (20:45 CEST) wearing a patch commemorating their unique haul of five Europa League/UEFA Cup wins.

First team to qualify for UEFA patch

The Andalusians, who are to play in red in their all-Spanish clash with Champions League holders Real Madrid, revealed the additional feature on their match shirt on Thursday.

Sevilla are the first side to earn the special UEFA badge for teams reaching five trophy successes in Europe's second-tier club competition, having sealed a quintet of triumphs in May.

To be worn in Super Cup and Europa League

In a statement on their website, the LaLiga outfit explained that they will only sport the accessory in the Super Cup and any future fixtures in the Europa League.

Their 3-1 victory over Liverpool in last term's final in Basel handed them qualification for the coming season's Champions League.
