The president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales, confirmed on Monday that the Supercopa de España, which until now was played in a double game, cambiará format this summer, so that “it will be a single party on the 12th and most likely in Tangier”.
“FIFA must be asked for permission and the necessary steps must be taken. There is a collective agreement signed between AFE and LaLiga that speaks of a day of rest and that it was unfeasible to play on days 5 and 12 because on the 5 the players did not arrive or they would do it with minimum filming. Nor on days 12 and 19 because the League understands that it is attacked the first league day, which is fundamental economically. That would generate a conflict between the League and the Federation itself that we want to avoid, “he said at a press conference.
As for the venue, the former player, accompanied by the president of the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE), David Aganzo, and Deputy Director of the presidency of LaLiga, Carlos del Campo, explained that the players' union asked them to “look for a place that is not a hot pot at the time of the game. ”
“Paradoxically, although it is in Africa, due to the weather conditions of Tangier, the temperature is always below 30 degrees at 7 or 8 in the afternoon,” he said, adding that “If that day there is a heat wave, bad luck”
After explaining that “both LaLiga and AFE support the decision that has been taken on the board of directors of the RFEF,” Rubiales stressed that they had “sought other options” and that “both Madrid as Valencia were a possibility”
“But we suffered a risk because we wanted to provide the Supercopa with a good atmosphere and a full stadium, and not being in both of them was a problem, which was being remedied by playing in a smaller field, but we did not get to the economic issue. , playing in Barcelona or in Seville was not accepted by the other club, “he recalled.
Regarding the economic section, the president stressed that “one of the clubs asked an economic compensation of 950,000 euros and playing in Tangier is going to be even better. “” Each club will be endowed with 6,000 tickets and full payment for the trip and stay in Tangier. The rest of the tickets will be sold 'online' “, he advanced for the fans that want to attend the match.
