The final stage of the Copa del Rey will be announced this Friday

Ruled the Bernabéu the Calderón, Mestalla and La Cartuja are the options.


If not recur one of those surprises that occasionally gives the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), today we know definitely host the final of the Copa del Rey and possibly also the final date. Is scheduled from 11.30 am. be held at 'Ciudad del Fútbol' in Las Rozas a meeting between representatives of the federal body of FC Barcelona and Athletic Club.

Ruled the Santiago Bernabéu by Real Madrid's steadfast refusal to yield, claiming in his stage works, the three options on the table have their supporters and detractors. This is the Calderón Mestalla and La Cartuja.

FC Barcelona, which will be represented by Toni Freixa and CEO, Antoni Rossich, will come with two points in the negotiations: one, that is the highest capacity for more fans can attend, and two, that could establish a fixed date, which logically should be that of 25. As for gauging. The monastery has about 60,000 locations, the Calderón and Mestalla about 55,000, about 52,000.

Athletic, who will come led by its president, Joshua Urrutia, who accompanied Jon Berasategi, general manager, agreed with the club as far as the issue date is concerned, but welcomed the stadium of La Cartuja despite being the largest capacity, by the fact that it has a running track and that the game remains to ambient pressure.

As for the Federation, represented today by Jorge Pérezgeneral secretary, Antonio Suárez, president of the commission and final competitions of the RFEF, and Miguel Ángel López, coordinator of the RFEF parties, opted for Mestalla. The reason is that the national federation wants to speed up the options to contest the final on 20 if Barça and Madrid do not reach the Champions League final and thus provide more days of preparation for the selection of Vicente del Bosque. Furthermore, there are clear that Calderón is in perfect condition 25 to be held there the Coldplay concert 19. In La Cartuja acts Bruce Springsteen 13. (via MD)
