La Cartuja in Seville will host the final of the Copa del Rey
The La Cartuja stadium in Seville will be announced in the next few hours as the venue for the final of the Copa del Rey to be held on April 18, according to Cope. The stadium that hosted the 1999 World Athletics Championships, the usual venue for concerts and the stage of a final event, will be the field where the next final of the Copa del Rey is played. The key to the designation is found in the economic offer that the authorities of the Spanish capital and of the Junta de Andalucía have made to the Royal Spanish Football Federation.
The favorite stadium weeks ago was the Wanda Metropolitano, but the movements of the Andalusian authorities in recent days have caused the transfer of the headquarters. From the Board and the City Council it has been guaranteed that the stadium, with some areas that appear to be little less than abandoned, will be in perfect condition before the final. The announcement of the agreement could include the conclusion of the Cup final on the same stage the next four seasons.
