Telecinco acquires rights to Spanish Copa de la Reina final

Spanish commercial broadcaster Telecinco has acquired rights to the final of this year’s Copa de la Reina women’s football competition between Atlético Madrid and Real Sociedad.

The match will take place at Granada’s Los Cármenes stadium on May 11. Telecinco’s coverage of the match will begin at 8pm, half an hour before kick-off.

Mediaset-owned Telecinco agreed the rights deal with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), which sanctions the tournament.

The RFEF is currently seeking a broadcast partner for the final of the men’s Copa del Rey between Barcelona and Valencia on May 25.

Earlier this week, the CNMC, Spain’s competition regulator, urged the RFEF to rethink its tender process for the men’s final as it does not fully comply with regulations.
