Nou Camp to stage Spanish Cup Final in May

Jesús Carrillo

The Nou Camp Stadium has been chosen by the Spanish Football Federation to host the final of the Spanish Cup –La Copa del Rey – between Seville and Atletico Madrid on May 19th.

This will be the third time that the final has been held at the Nou Camp and although it is scheduled for May 19th, that date could be moved forward a week to the 12th if Atletico are not involved in the Europa Cup Final in Hamburg.

Twice before

The win meant that Barca qualified for European football the following season, after having finished a disappointing 6th in the league and missed out on place in Europe via that route.

Seven years later, the Stadium again hosted the final, this time between Valencia and Real Madrid, with Madrid, who’d beaten Barca in the semi finals, winning 3-1.

Sixth Cup final organised by the club

The final will be the sixth Spanish Cup Final that the club has hosted, with two finals being held at the old ground in Calle Industria and one at the Les Corts ground.

Last final held in May 1999
The Nou Camp last staged a final in the 1998/99 season, when Manchester United and Bayern Munich met in the final of the Champions League. It was a memorable night for Sir Alex Fergusson, who saw his team stun the Germans with two late strikes to take the title. The Stadium also staged the final of the Cup Winners Cup in 1982, when Barca beat Standard Liega 2-1.
