"There was a criteria that weighed heavily in deciding the date, and it is possible that both clubs will be playing in the semi-finals of the Champions League", said Emilio Butragueño.
Following a meeting held by representatives of both sides and the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), held at the Ciudad del Fútbol in Las Rozas, it has been announced that the final of the Copa del Rey will be played at the Mestalla in Valencia on Wednesday the 16th of April at 21:30. Real Madrid and Barcelona will once again meet at the scene of the 2011 final.

The Whites' director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueño, explained the decision behind choosing Wednesday as the day of the game: "There was a criteria that weighed heavily in deciding the date, and it is possible that Barcelona, Real Madrid, or both sides, could be playing in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Therefore, the more days we have to prepare for this important game, the better".

"Always and when we are qualified, I think it is good news for both sides and for the players. Two years ago we had to play against Barcelona in the middle of the Champions League semi-finals, and we both argued against it. For this we have tried to make it so that should we arrive at this stage of the competition, it will be an even tie".

Ticket prices
"The lunch was very cordial. The relationship between both sides is fantastic and it was shown again. We have dealt with a very important aspect, that is a reduction in the price of tickets in comparison with the 2011 final. This means a 20 to 25% reduction on the prices, and the cheapest tickets will cost €45".

"The division of tickets has been, more or less, 40% for each club; 19,350 each. This match is one of the most attractive in the world and there won't be enough tickets for everyone who wants to come and watch the game", concluded Butragueño.
