Spanish Copa del Rey

Barca dealing with Copa drama


Spanish government approves law governing sale of TV rights

The ESPN FC crew believe Real Madrid will be tested when they travel to Sevilla on Saturday.
Barcelona trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have now combined for more than 100 goals in all competitions after their side's 6-0 thrashing of Getafe in La Liga.

MADRID -- A new Spanish law governing the sale of television rights to broadcast football games and the distribution of the income was approved by the government on Thursday.

The law will regulate the rights to transmit first- and second-division games as well as the Copa del Rey and Supercup competitions, said Education, Culture and Sports Minister Jose Ignacio Wert.

The Camp Nou will host the 2015 Copa del Rey final, a decision that's been a long time coming in Spain.

And so the soap opera comes to an end, and what fun it was. So much fun, in fact, that we'll do it all over again next year. Same time, same place. Or should that read "different time, different place" instead? Not long after one Seville-based sports newspaper announced that the Copa del Rey final would be held at Real Betis' Benito de Villamarin stadium, the Spanish football Federation announced that the Copa del Rey final will be held at FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium on May 30.


Barcelona's Camp Nou hosting Copa del Rey final sparks controversy

Barcelona's Camp Nou was controversially chosen as the site for the Copa del Rey final after their rivals Real Madrid turned down the opportunity to host it at the Santiago Bernabeu.

After weeks of endless negotiations in order to reach a mutual agreement, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have finally decided that the Camp Nou will host the Copa del Rey final on May 30. In other words, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao will challenge for the title in the Catalans' home stadium.

Despite both clubs identifying the Santiago Bernabeu as the ideal scenario for the final, the Real Madrid board ignored their request and rejected the offer as soon as they were approached. A petition...

Andres Iniesta thrilled Copa del Rey final set for Camp Nou

Andres Iniesta is happy that Barcelona will get to play the Copa del Rey final at home at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is delighted that his team will play the Copa del Rey final in their own stadium.

The Spanish Football Federation voted in favour of the domestic cup final between Barca and Athletic Bilbao on May 30 to be played at the Camp Nou after the two clubs had failed to reach an agreement on a neutral venue.

"I like the choice," Iniesta told Marca. "It's a very good venue. The important thing is that we will be playing in the final.

"The Copa final is a very special day...
