UEFA Chelsea vs Villareal

The 2021 UEFA Super Cup match between Chelsea and Villarreal will take place at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Wednesday, August 11, kicking off at 8 PM BST (9 PM CEST). Whether you’re on vacation on that date or simply couldn’t get tickets for the game, we’ll show you how to watch the UEFA Super Cup online from abroad.

We’ll only be recommending official sources for watching the UEFA Super Cup online. While unauthorized streams are frequently available, they’re extremely unreliable. Many will be taken offline during the match which means you may miss much of the action. Even if you find a stream that does stay online, chances are it’ll be low-resolution, and possibly even on a delay. Besides, there are multiple official sources for watching the UEFA Super Cup.

The UEFA Super Cup will only be available to stream on region-locked platforms. A VPN is required to continue watching via your usual home streaming service while traveling abroad.

How to watch UEFA Super Cup, Chelsea vs Villarreal online with a VPN

Not sure where to start? This step-by-step guide on how to watch the 2021 UEFA Super Cup online from abroad will hopefully save you some time.

Here’s how to live stream the UEFA Super Cup from anywhere:

  1. The first step is to sign up with an appropriate VPN service. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are excellent, value for money alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app, making sure to select the appropriate version for your device’s operating system. The above VPNs also offer browser extensions.
  3. Open the VPN app (or browser extension) and connect to a server in the country from which you wish to browse (such as the UK or USA).
  4. Decide which service you’d like to use and connect to a server in the appropriate country. For example, a server in the UK to watch via BT Sport.
  5. Go to the service you’re trying to access and select some content. It should now be unblocked! If not, we recommend you clear your browser’s cache and cookies.

The UEFA Super Cup will air live. If you want to watch Chelsea vs Villarreal live online, you should check your VPN works with your chosen streaming service ahead of time.

How to watch UEFA Super Cup online (Chelsea vs Villarreal) on UK TV

Unfortunately, there is no free way to watch the UEFA Super Cup in the UK as the game is being shown live on BT Sport which holds exclusive rights. Existing BT Sports customers are therefore able to watch the UEFA Super Cup online at no additional cost.

If you’re not a BT Sport customer, you have the option of purchasing a Monthly Pass. This contract-free option costs £25 and you don’t need BT Broadband to get it. Note that it renews automatically but you can cancel whenever you like. Once signed up, you can then watch the UEFA Super Cup via the BT Sport app.

While BT Sport is only available in the UK, it’s possible to watch from abroad with the help of a VPN. To do this, you’ll need to get a UK IP address. NordVPN works with BT Sport and even comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to try it out risk-free.

Where else can I watch the UEFA Super Cup live online?

Fortunately, the UEFA Super Cup will broadcast in a number of countries. This includes the following:


USA flag

CBS will be showing the UEFA Super Cup live on Paramount+. This streaming service requires a paid subscription which costs $4.99 for the Essential plan or $9.99 for the Premium plan. However, you can save 16% on these plans if you opt for annual billing. Furthermore, a 7-day free trial is available to new subscribers. To watch Paramount+ abroad, you’ll need to use a VPN to connect to a server in the US and get a US IP address.



In Spain, Movistar+ hold the rights to the UEFA Super Cup from 2021 to 2023. If you’re already a Movistar customer with access to their Liga de Campeones sports channel, this means you can watch the match at no extra cost. Otherwise, you’ll need to sign up but keep in mind that there are no contract-free options available. To stream Movistar+ content abroad, you’ll need a VPN and Spanish IP address.

Can I use a free VPN to watch the 2021 UEFA Super Cup?

While free VPNs may work in unblocking some of the above TV channels and streaming services, we don’t recommend them, for a few reasons. Free VPNs are inconsistent when it comes to unblocking region-locked websites and services. This may lead to disappointment when trying to watch a live event such as the 2021 UEFA Super Cup. A lack of servers and slow speeds means you’re likely to encounter some performance issues too.

Another area of concern with free VPNs is their lack of security. While a VPN should allow you to stream a sports event live without buffering or lag, it should also protect your privacy online. What many people don’t realize is that some free VPNs harvest personal data (including browsing history), selling it on to third parties. You may also find that the free VPN you use doesn’t secure your data with encryption or prevent data from being leaked with a kill switch.

What is the UEFA Super Cup?

The UEFA Super Cup is an annual match that takes place between the winners of the UEFA Champions League (Chelsea) and the UEFA Europa League (Villarreal). It first took place in 1972 and the current holders are Bayern Munich who won 2-1 after extra time against Sevilla in 2020. The competition’s most successful teams are FC Barcelona and A.C. Milan who have both won the trophy five times.

What should I know about the two sides involved?

This year’s match takes place between Chelsea, who won the Champions League for the second time with their 1-0 victory over Manchester City, and Villarreal who beat Manchester United 11-10 on penalties (following a 1-1 draw after extra time) to lift the UEFA Europa League trophy.

While this is Villarreal’s first UEFA Super Cup appearance, Chelsea won the trophy in 1998 with a 1-0 win over Real Madrid. However, Chelsea have since finished runners-up on three occasions (2012, 2013, and 2019).
