Dinamo Arena, the largest stadium in Tbilisi, are getting ready to host the UEFA Super Cup 2015.
The UEFA Super Cup is an annual football match between the reigning champions of the Champions League and the Europa League.
The Georgian Football Federation believed Dinamo Arena met all the necessary criteria for staging a high level global event.
The official announcement will be made as soon as UEFA representatives visit Tbilisi.
The Dinamo Arena, named after Boris Paichadze and formerly known as the Boris Paichadze National Stadium, is the home stadium of Georgia's national rugby union team and the country's national football team.
With a capacity of just under 55 000, Dinamo Arena is the largest stadium in Georgia and the Caucasus region.
Dinamo Arena was built in 1976 by Georgian architect Gia Kurdiani.
The UEFA Executive Committee awarded Tbilisi to host the UEFA Super Cup 2015 to Tbilisi in July 2012.
It is expected the Champions League Cup and the Europa League Cup will be brought to Tbilisi and exhibited at the open air venue.
The cost of tickets will be €30 but the Georgian Football Federation believed UEFA will set an exception and decrease the price.
A preliminary target date for the match between the winning teams of the Champion League and Europe League is August 14, 2015.
The teams will arrive in Tbilisi a week before the match and participate in various events.
This won’t be the only big sports event Tbilisi will host in 2015. The European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) will also take place in Georgia’s capital.
