ESPN has acquired the TV, radio, and online rights to next month's COPA DEL REY soccer final and AUGUST's Spanish SUPERCOPA. The two soccer events from SPAIN will air on ESPN DEPORTES RADIO as well as on ESPN DEPORTES TV and ESPN3.COM.
“We are thrilled to continue serving our soccer fans with top events from around the world,” said ESPN DEPORTES Sr. Dir./Programming and Acquisitions ERIC CONRAD. “With the COPA DEL REY final adding a third Clasico this season, and a close, competitive season of LA LIGA that promises an exciting SUPERCOPA, the timing is great to include these premier properties to the ESPN soccer programming lineup.”
This year's COPA DEL REY final will feature BARCELONA vs. REAL MADRID at the ESTADIO MESTALLA in VALENCIA. The two sides have not faced each other in the final since 1990, when BARCELONA won 2-0.
