The Johan Cruijff Schaal is a football trophy in the Netherlands named after legendary Dutch football player Johan Cruyff, also often referred to as the Dutch Super Cup. The winner is decided in one match only, played by the winner of the national football league the Eredivisie and the winner of the national KNVB Cup. In the event of a team winning both the Eredivisie and the KNVB Beker, the Johan Cruijff Shield will be contested between that team and the runner up in the national league. The match traditionally opens the Dutch football season in August one week before the Eredivisie starts.
