Every year, at the beginning of the football season, the DFL-Supercup is played in Germany. The Supercup is run by the Deutsche Fußball Liga. The DFL-Supercup, also known as German Super Cup, is a one-off football match that features the winners of the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal. If one team wins both the league and the cup, the Bundesliga runners-up will be their component. The fixture is hosted at the home of the team that wins the DFB Cup or finishes the league in second place. In case of a draw after 90 minutes, no extra time is played. The match is then decided by a penalty shoot-out.
Bayern Munich have won the DFL-Supercup 7 times, Borussia Dortmund 5 times and Werder Bremen 3 times. The cup have been won once by VfL Wolfsburg, Schalke04, VfB Stuttgart and 1.FC Kaiserslautern.
