LF Endesa already has its roadmap for the 2022/23 season. The FEB has appointed Vitoria-Gasteiz (Araba) as the venue for the LF Endesa Super Cup, so the first title of the season will be decided at the Mendizorrotza Sports Center in the Alava/Basque capital.
The Kutxabank Araski will therefore be one of the four participants in the Supercopa together with Avenue Perfumeriesthe Valencia B.C. and the Spar Girona. The format will be that of the latest edition. Two semifinals that will be played on October 8 and the grand final on Sunday 9, once the first day of the League has been played.
It will be the 20th edition of the LF Endesa Super Cup, which has been held since the 2003/04 season. Until 2020, a match was played between the League champion and the Cup champion. And in 2021 the number of participants was increased to four. Perfumerías Avenida goes to Vitoria-Gasteiz as champion of the League and Cup. Valencia BC won its place as runner-up in the League, while Spar Girona did so as runner-up in the Queen’s Cup. Kutxabank Araski will be the host and will debut in this competition.
Valencia BC defends the title won last season at the Santiago Martín de Tenerife, although the king of the competition is Perfumerías Avenida, who have won it nine times. Spar Girona has the 2015 and 2019 editions in its list of winners, while it will be the first participation of Kutxabank Araski.
