Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will compete for the 2023 Supercup against DFB Cup winners RB Leipzig when the pair meet at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, 12 August.
Bayern and Leipzig both retained their respective trophies from the 2021/22 season, so this year's Supercup sees a re-run of the 2022 edition. That took place at Leipzig's Red Bull Arena, with Bayern claiming the Supercup for a third straight season after a thrilling 5-3 win.
The Supercup is usually hosted by the DFB Cup holders, but Bayern have previously hosted as Bundesliga champions, most recently in 2020 against Borussia Dortmund. It has again been agreed between both clubs and the DFL that the game will be played in Munich at the Allianz Arena this year.
