RFEF opens tender for Copa del Rey final rights in Spain

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has opened a tender for domestic rights to the final of the Copa del Rey club competition.

Barcelona and Valencia will contest this year’s final, which will take place at Seville’s Estadio Benito Villamarín on May 25.

The RFEF has set a deadline of May 6 for bids to be submitted for the audiovisual rights to the match. The RFEF is set make an announcement on the winning bid the following day.

According to Palco23, the RFEF is hoping to receive upwards of €3m ($3.4m) for the rights.

Last year’s final, which saw Barcelona defeat Sevilla 5-0, was shown in Spain by public-service broadcaster TVE.
