Copa del Rey venue will be decided on March 25th

bernabeuThe venue for the Copa del Rey final between FC Barcelona and Athletic Club on May 30th, will be decided at a meeting at the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on March 25th.

At present, the Bernabéu, Calderón and Montjuïc are ruled out as options for various reasons with Mestalla and La Cartuja in Sevilla being the possible candidates. Barça prefer Valencia’s Mestalla whilst Bilbao opt for Seville although there are doubts about the state of the pitch at the Olympic Stadium in the Andalusian city.

Given a choice though, both clubs would prefer to play the final at the Bernabéu, hwever, Real Madrid have refused to hand over their stadium for the showpiece event.
