The RFEF and the two clubs agreed in a meeting today that the final of the Copa del Rey between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid has been fixed for Wednesday, April 16 at the Mestalla stadium in Valencia, at 9.30pm CET
Barca have been allocated 40% of the seats in the stadium, which represents about 19,350 tickets. This is slightly lower than the number available for the final in 2011, which was also staged in Valencia, as a result of changes to the stadium which have reduced capacity. Ticket prices range from 45 to 240 Euros, with more than half of the tickets between 20 % and 25 % cheaper than the prices for the previous Cup Finals
Both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will apply to the Professional Football League ( LFP ) to have their games set for the week before the final(Granada -Barça and Real Madrid- Almeria) switched to Saturday and for the following weekend’s games (set for 19 or 20 April) to be postponed due to the proximity of a possible Champions League semi final on 22 or 23 April. Barça have suggested Wednesday May 7 as a date to play their game scheduled for that weekend, against Athletic Bilbao.
The Club will shortly be informing members and penyes about procedures for ticket applications.
