The 'Grada Fans RMFC' section of the Santiago Bernabéu made it known that they are completely against plans to stage this year's Copa del Rey final at the stadium. As a venue is sought for the final between Barcelona and Sevilla and provisionally set for Saturday 21 May. Chants of "No Cup final to be played here!", rang around the ground as the half hour was reached in today's meeting with Athletic Club.

Both finalists and the RFEF will have to find another stadium to host the event as, like last year, Real Madrid have not offered their stadium for the Cup final. The Vicente Calderón could be one possible solution if both clubs agree to play the final in the capital.
