Perspolis winner of Super Cup trophy

Tehran, Heavyweight Perspolis club of Iran and champion of the premier league was introduced on Tuesday as winner of the Super Cup 2018 in the country.

The match has been organized to be held on Friday (July 20), but because the rival team (Esteqlal of Tehran) has refrained from attending the match, Iran's football federation declared Persepolis as the winner of the match with a 3-0 result.

The Super Cup is an annual football match organized by Iran's football federation and contested by the reigning champions of the two main Iranian club competitions, the champion of the premier League (Perspolis) and the champion of the knock out or elimination (Esteqlal of Tehran) tournaments.
