Fans will be allowed to attend the Copa del Rey final, postponed from last season, between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao next month.
A report by Radio Cadena Ser said today, Wednesday, that the Seville Stadium, which has a capacity of 60,000 spectators, will be ready to host between 20 and 25 percent of this number for the King’s Cup final for the last season on April 3, and for the final of the current season between Barcelona and Bilbao on the 17th of the same month. .
The Spanish Federation declined to comment on the report but said it would hold a meeting with Bilbao and Sociedad on Thursday to coordinate matters related to the final match, including the possibility of fans attending.
Spain has banned fans from attending professional football matches since March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in Bilbao and Sociedad agreeing to postpone the King’s Cup final by one year to increase the chance of fans being in the stands.
Bilbao and Sociedad have never met in the Copa del Rey final, and the two teams have agreed to miss a potential chance to qualify for the European League this season in order to play in front of the fans.
